Jesus Christ Superstar

Directed by Hunter Gilliam

February 5 to March 6, 1999

The 1st production of the 1999 Season

Music by: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by: Tim Rice

Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
