Jesus Christ Superstar in London

Jesus Christ Superstar – The ultimate Lloyd-Webber and Rice classic

Welcome to the latest iteration of Jesus Christ Superstar, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical. The show has been given a fresh new face in the shape of Timothy Sheader’s Olivier Award-winning production. It's on at the Barbican, and it's predicted to be one of the most popular revivals for the year.

This magical production scored a massive hit at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016, at the time starring Declan Bennett and Tyrone Huntley. The live music, the focus on celebrity, and its examination of the weird world of super-fans all give the musical a new, highly contemporary edge and it enjoyed widespread critical acclaim.

The self-same version of Jesus Christ Superstar is on at London's Barbican from 4th July to 24th August 2019. The plot reveals the final seven days in the life of Jesus, covering his arrival in Jerusalem, his disciples and his ultimate crucifixion. And it's stacked with unforgettably famous show tunes including Gethsemane, Jesus Christ Superstar itself, I Don’t Know How To Love Him, and Everything’s Alright.

This is an all-time Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice classic. The original vinyl record was released – as a concept piece – way back in 1970 and was first staged during 1971 on Broadway. In 1972 it hit the West End's Palace theatre with pop star Paul Nicholas in the starring role, and stayed there non-stop for eight years.

Since those early, heady days the musical has appeared across the world in numerous languages. In the UK it enjoyed a successful run at the Lyceum Theatre, starring Steve Balsamo and Zubin Varla, and also embarked on a UK arena tour starring Tim Minchin and Ben Forster.

The music and lyrics come from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The director is Timothy Sheader and the lighting comes from Lee Curran. Nick Lidster does the sound, for Autograph, and design comes from Tom Scutt. The choreography is beautifully handled by Drew McOnie and musical direction is by Tom Deering.

One of the planet's most famous rock operas, JCS is loosely based on the Gospels, a tale of loyalty and betrayal, faith and doubt, and the impossibility of avoiding one's destiny. It stars biblical favourites Judas, Mary Magdalene, Pontius Pilate and more, and the whole thing is wonderfully, magically rousing, whether or not you happen to be religious.

Who is this show for?
This show is recommended for people aged 10 or more.

IT'S MAGIC!

The best JCS production I've ever seen. Too bad not to have the cd. Ricardo Afonso (Judas) is truly extraordinary (they all are, but he really impressed us a lot).
