Jesus Christ Superstar to open in the US  
Audiences all over the US have a chance this year to see the brand new production of JCS.
Caiphus - Jesus Christ Superstar US Tour

The critically acclaimed Jesus Christ Superstar US tour is enthusiastically endorsed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

When Jesus Christ Superstar first exploded onto the West End stage in 1972, it was clear that the musical world would never be the same again. Almost 30 years on and this astonishing musical is back as fresh and gripping as ever, proving that no musical since has been able to touch audiences with quite the same impact or emotional intensity. Acclaimed as a theatrical masterpiece at the time of its premiere, Jesus Christ Superstar has since attained the status of theatrical legend. From his entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through to his death at the hands of Pontius Pilate, Jesus Christ Superstar is an epic retelling of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Telling the story of men and women driven to their fate by forces beyond their control, this unique musical is as powerful and compelling today as the day it was written.

Jesus Christ Superstar is packed with hit songs including “I Don’t Know How To Love Him,” “Could We Start Again Please” and of course, “Superstar.” Fierce rock rhythms, chunky power chords, pulsating tension along with heart searing ballads all combine in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s haunting and unforgettable score.

For this entirely new production, Kevin Moriarty will direct, choreography is by David Wilder – basing both on the direction and choreography by Gale Edwards and Anthony Van Laast, scenic design by Peter J. Davison, costume design by Roger Kirk, lighting design by Mark McCullough and sound design by Jon Gottlieb and Phil Allen. Jesus Christ Superstar is produced by The Really Useful Superstar Company, Inc. and Nederlander Presentations, Inc., in association with Terry Allen Kramer. Executive Producer is Tom McCoy/McCoy Rigby Entertainment.
