Jesus Christ Superstar
Since Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar was released as a rock-opera concept album, it’s become one of Billboard’s biggest-selling records, a fully staged musical on Broadway and the West End, and a 1973 film. But no matter the arena—and sometimes it literally was an arena—its heart has remained the same: the story of Jesus’s last week of life and the betrayal that began its end. Loosely based on the Gospel accounts, the story begins as Jerusalem prepares for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples, alights on the dissatisfaction of Judas with Jesus, and ends with Christ on the cross.
During each performance, shredding guitars and thunderous drums intertwine with traditional symphonic instrumentation as the cast portrays the Last Supper, Judas’s betrayal, and the trial before Pilate. Other hints of contemporary life and language inject the plot with subtle, modern-day twists, too, creating a light irony and relatability while catchy yet emotionally resonant tunes such as “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” and the brassy title track remind attendees why Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber became instant Broadway heavyweights.
