Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar is an iconic musical phenomenon with a world-wide fan base. Now, almost 10 years after the last major tour, a new mesmerizing production comes to North America.

Helmed by the acclaimed director Timothy Sheader and cutting-edge choreographer Drew McOnie, the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre production won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, garnering unprecedented reviews and accolades. Appealing to both theater audiences and concert music fans, this production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring.

Jesus Christ Superstar is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas. Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes 'I Don’t Know How to Love Him', 'Gethsemane' and 'Superstar'.
