Jesus Christ Superstar
Friday, June 7, 2019
This 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice started as a rock concept album before it made its Broadway debut in 1971. The musical tells the biblical story of Jesus and the last several days of his life. Loosely based on the Gospels, the musical focuses on the personal conflicts between Jesus, his disciples, the people of Israel, and the leadership of Rome. The story is told from the point of view of disciple Judas, and it focuses on 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.
