An album that inspired a revolution. A revelation that changed the world. A reinvention for this Millenium.
Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You, Into the Woods) directs this mesmerizing new production of the iconic global phenomenon, Jesus Christ Superstar which comes to The Hawth for one week only!
Originally staged by London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, this reimagined production won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. Choreographed by Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom), and with music and lyrics by multi-award winners Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar is set during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ.
Ian McIntosh (We Will Rock You, Follies, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical - Olivier nominated for ‘Best Supporting Actor in a Musical) will play Jesus, Shem Omari James (Dreamgirls UK Tour) will play Judas and Hannah Richardson (Sting’s The Last Ship) plays Mary.
Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes I Don’t Know How to Love Him and Gethsemane.
