About this production:
Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of biblical Jesus in the final days leading up to his crucifixion. A rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, the musical has no spoken dialogue and is sometimes considered a modern rock-opera. Loosely based on the Gospels, Superstar focuses on the personal conflicts between Jesus, his disciples, the people of Israel, and the leadership of Rome. The musical focuses on both Judas' struggle making the decision to betray Jesus and Jesus' human psychology, fear, and anger in understanding and accepting his role as both leader and martyr. The show is a product of its era, permeated with 1970's rock, gospel, folk and funk themes, modern language and colloquialisms, and high-energy dance numbers.
This production of Jesus Christ Superstar is a modern exploration of provoking, challenging questions based on events of the last week in the life of Jesus Christ - questions that are timeless and can apply to our society today. What happens when a charismatic leader whose influence and popularity has spawned a growing social movement viewed as a threat by the established power structure? What happens when that Leader is ultimately brought down by one of his closest followers who fears the movement will lead to death and violence? Themes of Faith vs. Doubt, Faithfulness vs. Betrayal, Popularity and Power collide into a central question: What would you do if you believed your closest friend, your idol, your MESSIAH and all your fellow followers had lost sight of the mission you thought you had in common and instead was a leading a movement that could cause the deaths of many?
This production will be told through the lens of a swirling collage of modernistic images and rock music forming a Rock-N-Roll Passion Play in a contemporary, symbolic and timeless setting reflective of our society's idolization of messianic personalities and power struggles.
