About Jesus Christ Superstar
What started off as a rock opera concept album is known to the world today as one of the all-time great musicals. Legendary English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber was behind the creation of this concept album in 1970. The lyrics were penned by Tim Rice.
Just one year later, Jesus Christ Superstar made its debut on Broadway to great critical acclaim. Fans as well as critics loved the production characterized by unique storytelling, flawless choreography, eye-catching costumes and stunning visuals.
In the years and decades since, many productions of this timeless musical have taken place in different parts of the world. The current run around the United States commemorates 50 years since its inception and you can be a part of it by getting Jesus Christ Superstar Minneapolis tickets.
Primarily a sung-through musical with very little spoken dialogues, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the final week of Jesus’ life based on various Gospel accounts. The show begins with Jesus and his disciples preparing for that fateful trip to Jerusalem that ends with crucifixion. The interpersonal and political struggles Jesus and his disciple Judas Iscariot experience during this time are a major part of the show.
In 1972, Jesus Christ Superstar picked up multiple Tony Award nominations including "Best Original Score" and "Best Costume Design." The Broadway revivals in 2000 and 2012 followed suit by earning the “Best Revival of a Musical” nomination. The show has also been a winner at the Drama Desk Awards, Theatre World Awards and the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
