About this show

As relevant and timeless as ever, Jesus Christ Superstar, the rock opera vision of "the greatest story ever told," is perhaps more potent in today's troubled world than when it was first produced in 1971. Set in two acts, Superstar tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth, dramatizing his entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his preaching and popularity, his betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. Internationally beloved star Ted Neeley, best known for his Golden Globe nominated role as "Jesus" in the Norman Jewison film of Jesus Christ Superstar, headlines this National tour, marking his long awaited, triumphant return to the role that created a cult-like phenomenon across the globe.
