Epic production returns to Birmingham.
One of the West End’s greatest triumphs, Jesus Christ Superstar, comes to the Birmingham Hippodrome stage next month.
The musical exploded onto the musical scene in 1971, changing the face of musical theatre forever.
Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through a groundbreaking score. As compelling today as it was at its inception over forty years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar has some of musical theatre’s most legendary songs including I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, and Gethsemane through to, of course, Superstar.
Leading performer Glenn Carter returns as Jesus, a role he has played in the West End, on Broadway and on film. Musical theatre star Tim Rogers, whose theatre credits include Carousel, Whistle Down the Wind, and the title role in Jekyll & Hyde at the Union Theatre, plays Judas Iscariot, while X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji stars as Mary Magdalene direct from the UK and European tour of Thriller Live.
Produced by Bill Kenwright, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the world’s oldest story with a modern theatricality he has brought to Evita, Joseph, Cabaret, Blood Brothers, Whistle Down the Wind, Starlight Express and many more.
