Jesus Christ Superstar in Broadway JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Rabobank Arena, Theater & Convention Center
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is reimagined for the 21st century as an arena rock spectacular. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webberas groundbreaking rock musical now features an extraordinary cast of rock, pop and R&B superstars. Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Tim Rice, who wrote the lyrics, was inspired by the Bob Dylan anthem aWith God On Our Sidea which features Judas in its penultimate verse and is from Dylanas seminal 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changina. As Tim says in his autobiography: aoeFrom a very young age I had wondered what I might have done in the situations in which Pontius Pilate and Judas Iscariot found themselves. How were they to know Jesus would be accorded divine status by millions and that they would as a result be condemned down the ages?a

Looped in Broadway LOOPED
Ensemble Theatre Company
A touching and delectable comedy about the saucy and inimitable Tallulah Bankhead, who once said of herself: "I'm as pure as the driven slush." Based on a real event, Looped takes place in the summer of 1965, when a boozed-up Ms. Bankhead needed eight hours to redub - or loop - one line of dialogue for what turned out to be her last film, the 1965 horror flick, "Die! Die! My Darling!" Things are not easy for poor Danny Miller, who's had the good fortune to have been selected to work that particular sound editing session. Looped will star screen and stage luminary Marsha Mason and will be directed by 6-time Emmy Award winner and Ensemble Board Member Glenn Jordan.
