cross to bear
Despondent and dejected over the state of too many important issues in our world today — wonder | wander | women return to an old favorite to lift our mood and resurrect our vibe — the musical hit, Jesus Christ Superstar.
Popular among both theater audiences and concert music fans, this production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring.
Jesus Christ Superstar is an iconic musical phenomenon with a world-wide fan base. In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, a new mesmerizing production returns to North America.
Originally staged by London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and helmed by the acclaimed director Timothy Sheader and award-winning choreographer Drew McOnie, this staging won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival.
Featuring award-winning music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas.
The legendary score reflects rock roots that define a generation.
AN ALBUM THAT INSPIRED A REVOLUTION.
A REVELATION THAT CHANGED THE WORLD.
A REINVENTION FOR THIS MILLENNIUM.
Just what we need to counteract all our current and age-old horrors. Wars that should never be. The supreme court trying to reverse a crucial law. Stolen elections in corrupt countries.
Too many murdered and disappeared. Senseless violence and divisive hatred. Not enough urgency or clout to stop corporate greed and the destruction of our planet. The list goes on and on.
Passion and truth boldly blare at us — a wakeup call for these fraught times.
Driving a revolution to rage against our manmade horrors.
This is not religion — it is a declaration and demand of the best for all.
