Tony-award-winning director Des McAnuff leads a new revival of this rock opera about the last week of Christ’s life, crafted by theater legends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Originally mounted on Broadway in 1971 as a cheeky, provocative manifestation of Webber’s and Rice’s rock concept album, “Jesus Christ Superstar” is most enjoyable now for the modern glam-industrial production design including a NASDAQ-like ticker, Josh Young’s strong turn as Judas, and of course, the famous songs “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Superstar”. Open your heart and let yourself get swept up in the rousing spectacle of the “Greatest Story Ever Told."
