Three-time GRAMMY Award nominee and artists from bands Postmodern Jukebox, tUnE-yArDs and Diane Coffee join Broadway and West End talent for the North American premiere of our Evening Standard and Olivier Award-winning production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

The show, which will be re-created by members of our original creative team, plays 27 April to 20 May 2018 at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and we are proud that Cavin Cornwall will reprise his 2016 Open Air Theatre performance as Caiaphas. The Chicago production will also feature members of the Lyric Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

The Lyric cast also includes Broadway artist Heath Saunders (Jesus); three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated soul singer Ryan Shaw (Judas); tUnE-yArDs tour vocalist Jo Lampert (Mary Magdalene); Broadway and Postmodern Jukebox crooners Michael Cunio (Pilate) and Mykal Kilgore (Simon Zealotes); Diane Coffee frontman Shaun Fleming (Herod); Broadway artist Joseph Anthony Byrd (Annas); and Chicago-based artist Andrew Mueller (Peter).
