With the production already selling quicker than in 2016, we have also extended the run through to Saturday 23 September.

Jesus Christ Superstar won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and Evening Standard Award for Best Musical, along with five further Olivier nominations for Best Theatre Choreography, Best Lighting, Best Sound, Outstanding Achievement in Music, and Best Actor in a Musical (for Tyrone Huntley). For his role as Judas, Tyrone won the Evening Standard Emerging Talent Award.

Declan Bennett will perform ‘Gethsemane’ this evening (4 May) at Magic at the Musicals, at the Royal Albert Hall, with Danny Mac, Fred Haig and Samuel Edwards (replacing Jeremy Taylor, who has withdrawn from the production due to injury) also giving their first performance as Gabey, Chip and Ozzie from On The Town. Magic at the Musicals will be broadcast on Mellow Magic at 6pm, Sunday 7 May.

We are delighted that Magic are our lead media partner for Jesus Christ Superstar.
