Whats the buzz? The first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage, Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless work, the rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.
Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christs life. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire. - The Musical Company.
Third Wall Productions' performances of Jesus Christ Superstar will be staged at St. Thomas Church, 1108 Providence Road, Towson on June 30, July 1, and July 7 and 8 at 8 p.m., and at 2 p.m. on July 1 and July 8.
