This was my 2nd time to see this amazing cast, I went back to see it again with other family members and they loved it so much. You will not be disappointed.

This Simi theater is like The Little Theater That Could. Saw an excellent DROWSY CHAPERONE production a few months ago, and now this. JCS is one of my favorite shows, and they really did a terrific job.

Really loved it, though I was expecting to be disappointed at the small venue out in the serious surburbs. All was excellent, and they could've fallen flat in so many areas but didn't. Phew. Took a chance taking my 2 teenage kids on Mother's...continued

Quotes & Highlights

The original production of Jesus Christ Superstar on Broadway was nominated for 5 Tony Awards, and the revival in 2000 was nominated for one.

Description

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ‘60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
