About

Jesus Christ Superstar on Tour

The musical-theater version of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice's hit 1970 rock opera gets the passionate revival it has long deserved when the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre's production of Jesus Christ Superstar comes to the United States. The show's 50th Anniversary Tour offers an emotionally resonant, hard-rocking experience that debuted in London in 2016. Director Timothy Sheader and choreographer Drew McOnie's cutting-edge production won a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and the BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards. The 50th Anniversary Tour marks the first major revival of Jesus Christ Superstar in nearly a decade.

Jesus Christ Superstar Background

Jesus Christ Superstar originated as a high-concept rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice in 1970 and sold more than 7 million copies by 1983. Their account of Jesus' last week of life made its Broadway debut as a musical in 1971, dazzling audiences with its stirringly maximal music and minimal dialogue. Two film adaptations followed, in 1973 and 1999, and NBC aired a live concert version, starring John Legend as Jesus, on April 1 (Easter Sunday), 2018.

"This is not your grandmother's Superstar," Catey Sullivan wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times when Timothy Sheader directed the musical in Chicago in 2018. "Drew McOnie's choreography has the explosive feel of barely contained ecstasy, filled with flailing movements that evoke old time tent revivals where snake handlers spoke in tongues and miraculously cured the sick."

The 50th Anniversary Tour production of Jesus Christ Superstar stars actor-singer-songwriter Aaron La Vigne as Jesus, actor-poet James Delisco Beeks as Judas and Jenna Rubaii as Mary Magdalene. You'll shout hallelujah! during the onstage rock band's renditions of "This Jesus Must Die," "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and "Superstar." And when one of the Pharisees sings, "One thing I'll say for him, Jesus is cool," you will take him at his word.

    A bit different but amazing!

    by itw on 4/14/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    Their voices, especially those of Judas and Jesus were simply off the charts amazing!! You could only sit there with your mouth open! I was a bit surprised that they used hand held microphones and passed then back and forth. The scene where Jesus Christ Superstar was sung by Judas was where they chose to show the brutality of Jesus' beatings. You couldn't focus on the song that Judas sang with such power and conviction only the choreographed beatings. Perhaps that's the way it should be. (This is just a personal view point and not a flaw in the performance.)

    Great Show

    by BMWDAD on 4/13/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    This production of Jesus Christ Superstar was a slightly different interpretation and it was terrific! The performers and musicians did a great job. We really enjoyed it.

    Incredible show

    by Sjm on 4/13/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    JC Superstar was just incredible, the music, the singers and cast were just fantastic. Non stop music, the modern version of Jesus Christ and how he was betrayed and crucified. A must see.

    Terrible show

    by Nic on 4/12/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    This show was expensive and terrible. You could not hear any of the words which made it impossible to follow along.

    long time fan

    by long time fan on 4/12/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    I was first introduced to Jesus Christ Superstar in the 1970's as a young child, this performance lived up to my first experience. It recreated all the emotions I felt the first time. I was able to recall almost all the words to the songs. The performers were superb.

    Jesus Christ Superstar Never Disappoints!

    by cmf4312 on 4/11/24West Herr Auditorium Theatre at West Herr Performing Arts Center - Rochester

    The 50th Anniversary presentation was just as good as the one I saw at the RBTL in 2021 and a couple of times in the 1970’s phenomenal! The tour had some very strong and talented actresses/actors and I enjoyed the evening!

    Singing was disappointing.

    by Starfish on 4/3/24Hershey Theatre - Hershey

    Dancing was good, but was disappointed. I could not understand the words when they wee singing except for the lady who portrayed Mary. My friends said they also could not hear the words of the songs. I actually went home and watched it on YouTube so I would understand the point of the show.
