Jesus Christ, Superstar is the groundbreaking theatrical masterpiece by the legendary writing team of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The first collaboration between Webber and Rice to be performed on stage, Jesus Christ, Superstar is one of the most popular and enduring works ever created for musical theatre. Featuring such notable songs as "Superstar", "Everything's All Right" and "I Don't Know How to Love Him", Jesus Christ Superstar earned five Tony nominations.
It tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Superstar dramatizes Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by His preaching and popularity, His betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pilate, and His ultimate crucifixion.
