    WHAT: A rock opera from the team that brought you Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor DreamcoatJesus Christ Superstar takes us back 2000 years to Jesus’ last days. Even the high priest bent on his destruction cannot deny that “Jesus is cool” and his message is resonating with the people of Jerusalem. But Jesus and his followers can’t stop the rising tide of political turmoil that threatens his very life.
