Why See Jesus Christ Superstar?

A rock opera that traces the final days in the life of Jesus Christ - his arrival in Jerusalem, his betrayal, Passion and crucifixion - as well as his relationships with Judas Iscariot and Mary Magdalene. The show features the hits "I Don't Know How to Love Him," "What's the Buzz" and the title song.

The zeal with which Christ's followers are hailing him as the Son of God has become a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervour will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal.
