Photo Flash: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Plays Theatre At The Center

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, the Tony Award nominated, groundbreaking theatrical masterpiece by legendary writing team Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, will be playing only at Theatre at the Center, 1040 Ridge Road, Munster, IN, July 8 through August 8. The press performance will be July 11. The first collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be performed on the professional stage, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is one of the most popular and enduring works ever created for the musical theatre. The production will star Jeff Award Winner Max Quinlan as "Jesus" and will be Directed and Choreographed by Stacey Flaster.

In JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, Jesus is portrayed as a prophet / rock star whose appeal stems as much from the crowd's energy as from his own inspirational message. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, 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. In this production, Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality.

As relevant and timeless as ever, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, the rock opera version of "the greatest story ever told," is perhaps more potent in today's troubled world than when it was first produced. Featuring such notable songs as "Superstar", "Everything's Alright" and "I Don't Know How To Love Him", JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR earned five Tony nominations.

Starring with Max Quinlan as "Jesus" in the cast of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR will be Larry Adams as "Pontius Pilate", Joe Tokarz as "Judas", Audrey Billings as "Mary Magdalene", Jeff Diebold as "Caiaphas", Daniel Castro as "Simon Zealotes", Steve Genovese as "King Herod", Kevin Barthel as "Annas", Jonathan Lee Cunningham as "Peter" and ensemble members Lauren Creel, Courtney Crouse, Robert Deason, Jim DeSelm, Dan Ferretti, Jackie Gessert, Benjamin Kirberger, Alex McCrary, Nicole Miller, Ashton Napier, Rebecca Pink, Cory Stonebrook and Peter Vamvakas.

Joining Director and Choreographer Stacey Flaster will be Musical Director Bill Underwood. The design team for JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is Scenic Designer Christopher Ash, Costume Designer Nikki Delhomme, Lighting Designer Tim Fandrei, Wig Designer Kevin Barthel, Props Designer Libby Fandrei and Sound Designer Barry Funderburg. The Stage Manager is Rita Vreeland.
