Equal parts modern allegory and fun historic retelling, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Jesus Christ Superstar has something for everyone. The story of Christ’s last 7 days is seen through a lens of the late 60’s, comparing his meteoric rise to that of contemporary celebrities. Borrowing from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the story follows the Roman Empire’s increasing distrust of Jesus and his following. When Judas betrays Jesus to the Roman Empire, Jesus and his followers face the ultimate test of their belief. Driven by a stirring score, Jesus Christ Superstar runs the gamut of emotion, with satirical humor, thought-provoking edge, and emotional intensity.
