Jesus Christ Superstar in Broadway JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
UTEP Don Haskins 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 Webbera€™s 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 a€˜With God On Our Sidea€™ which features Judas in its penultimate verse and is from Dylana€™s seminal 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changina€™. As Tim says in his autobiography: a€oeFrom 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€

Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry in Broadway BIG RIVER: THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY
Cameo Theatre
Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.

The Professionals in Broadway THE PROFESSIONALS
Overtime Theater
Delilah Small is a big star stuck in a small play. The lead actor has a restraining order out on her, her agent is selling her out for a can of beans, the supporting actress may have dengue fever and even the understudies have been replaced by other understudies. When a seemingly incompetent illusionist is thrown into the mix things take a turn and then go down the rabbit hole as every attempt to establish order only leads to more frenetic hilarity. The Professionals is a play to make you wonder if it is possible to remember any truth if your entire life is a series of performances.
