CHRIST SUPERSTAR :
Timeless and for our Time
Christ Superstar, the groundbreaking theatrical masterpiece by legendary writing
team Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, is coming to The Mission Theatre in
Fallbrook on March 25 for 9 performances. The first collaboration between
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be performed on the professional stage,
Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the most popular and enduring works ever
created for the musical theatre. Featuring such notable songs as
“Superstar”, “Everything’s Alright” and “I Don’t Know How to Love
Him”, Jesus Christ Superstar earned five TONY nominations.
in one act, Jesus Christ Superstar 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 Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion.
Perpetually changing the face of musical theatre, Jesus Christ Superstar will
leave audiences captivated by its power. As relevant and timeless as ever, Jesus
Christ Superstar, the rock opera vision of “the greatest story ever told,”
is perhaps more potent in today’s troubled world than when it was first
produced. Now, for the new millennium, this magnificent story comes once again
vividly to the stage in an unforgettable performance.
