Jesus Christ Superstar is back on tour, starring Glenn Carter in his role as Jesus, and will be coming to Glasgow’s King’s Theatre this autumn.
Jesus Christ Superstar exploded onto the musical scene in 1971 – stunning audiences and changing the face of musical theatre forever. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through an extraordinary, groundbreaking score. As compelling today as it was at its inception over forty years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar has some of musical theatre’s most legendary songs from I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, and Gethsemane through to, of course, Superstar.
Produced by Bill Kenwright and the creative team behind numerous blockbuster musicals, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the world’s oldest story with the superb theatricality they have brought to Evita, Joseph, Cabaret, Blood Brothers and Whistle Down the Wind to mention only a few.
Leading performer Glenn Carter is set to return as Jesus, a role he has played in the West End, on Broadway and on film.
Musical theatre star Tim Rogers, whose theatre credits include Carousel, Whistle Down the Wind, Jersey and the title role in Jekyll & Hyde at the Union Theatre, will play Judas Iscariot, while X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji stars as Mary Magdalene direct from the UK and European tour of Thriller Live.
