Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's groundbreaking "rock opera" changed the face of musical theater when it debuted on Broadway in 1971. Telling the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus, "Superstar" dramatizes Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the unrest caused by his preaching and popularity, his betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate, and his ultimate crucifixion. This production was one of the most successful productions in the history of The Sands Theater Center.
In 1971, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR opened on Broadway where it ran for 711 performances at the Mark Hellinger Theatre.
