“Judas was terrified. Not only because he thought Christ was getting out of control… Judas thought it was affecting HIM.” – Tim Rice, Lyricist / Jesus Christ Superstar

A rock star stands center stage, awash in lights while tens-of-thousands of adoring fans repeat every word she sings. A football player strikes a victory pose in the end zone while a stadium erupts with ecstasy, celebrating the superhuman’s accomplishment. An endless sea of bodies stands for hours shivering in the freezing temps just to say they were there when the new leader of the free world was sworn in. We love and celebrate our idols, we always have…that is until we move on to our next idol.

This is not just the story of the last 7 days of the greatest idol in history. It’s the story of the close friend who tried to save him and why that friend eventually betrayed him. This is a story of love and fear, a story of kindness and greed, a story of expectations and what happens when those expectations are not met. This is an energized rock opera that delves into the internal struggles of those mortals, those humans – including Jesus himself – as they drew closer to one of the most pivotal moments in history. It’s an emotionally-charged journey in which, in the end, each person discovers something about themselves when the stakes are at their highest.

What began as a rock opera concept album (which dominated the U.S. charts upon its 1970 release) transformed into a global stage phenomenon that garnered 7 Tony Award nominations in the U.S. and endless awards overseas in its 40-plus years. And while thousands of productions have taken the stage in 31 different countries, rest assured, this is the production the theater community around the country will be talking about next Spring. Be a part of the conversation.
