JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR tells the story of Judas’s betrayal of Jesus Christ, but it’s not the same narrative you might have heard. This inventive musical humanizes both characters and invites the audience to witness their thoughts and experiences behind closed doors, putting their flaws and triumphs on display.
