Inspired by the political and personal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus Christ, this spectacular musical follows the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparations for his arrival in Jerusalem and ending with his crucifixion.
Originally written as a concept rock-opera album by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar exploded onto the Broadway stage in 1971 earning itself five Tony Awards nominations by the following year. Almost forty years later, the show has gone on to become one of the greatest and most enduring musicals of its time.
Centrestage Theatre Company now bring the show to Centrestage Theatre with all the unforgettable songs including Hosanna, Gethsemane, Everything's Alright, I Don't Know How To Love Him and the title song itself Superstar.
