FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 14, 2015
MUSICAL THEATER HERITAGE AT CROWN CENTER PRESENTS...
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, the classic rock opera from 1970 will be presented by Musical Theater Heritage June 4th—21st at its 243 seat theater at the Crown
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR follows the last seven days in life of Jesus of Nazareth. The show is loosely based on
accounts in the Gospels beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion.
The show offers a free interpretation of Christ's psychology as he interacts with the major historical characters, especially Judas, who is depicted as a
tragic figure. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities, as well as slang, pervade the lyrics. Also, allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the
depiction of political events during Christ's last days.
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, features a score with songs written in several different styles, including "What's The Buzz", "Everything is All Right", "King
Herod's Song" and –of course– the big pop hit from the show: "I Don't Know How to Love Him".
MTH will use an entirely local, professional cast for its 15 performances of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at MUSICAL THEATER HERITAGE at CROWN CENTER.
