Jesus Christ Superstar in Broadway JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Street Theatre Company
It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. 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. 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.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

C. , a mediator sent by the Department of Education gets Atwater and Ellis to co-chair a committee formed to debate the desegregation. Forced to face each other and confront the prejudice in their hearts, they ultimately discover the real enemy they share.
