The Dress Circle: All-Star "Jesus Christ Superstar"
This weekend, many people will be celebrating Palm Sunday, and The Dress Circle will join in the celebration with an all-star production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber / Tim Rice musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” (3/25 7:00 p.m.) Beginning as a concept album in 1970, the first authorized concert version of the material was seen in Pittsburgh, PA in July of 1971 with the world premier staged presentation arriving on Broadway in October of 1971. It would have its West End Premiere in 1972.
Our all-star look at the score will include performances from the 1996 London revival, the 20th Anniversary recording, the 2000 London revival, and the 1992 Australian cast.
