Jesus Christ Superstar started in 1970, as a rock opera album, (Music by Andrew Lloyd Weber /Lyrics by Tim Rice) with its debut on Broadway in 1971. Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of the extraordinary and universally-known series of events seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. It is a bright and breathtaking retelling of the life of Jesus Christ. There have been MANY variations of this production, with the set being modern; psychedelic; militant; even a zombie themed. Director Razo brings an artistic vision, bringing a mix of technology with traditional.
