Lyrics by TIM RICE Music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
Following its overwhelming sell-out success in 2016, Jesus Christ Superstar is back!
Voted Best Musical in the Evening Standard Awards, the production returns for just 41 performances, giving audiences one final chance to see it in its original home.
Jesus Christ Superstar is also nominated for six Olivier Awards, making it our most nominated production ever, including Best Musical Revival, Best Theatre Choreography, Best Lighting Design, Best Sound Design, Outstanding Achievement in Music, and Best Actor in a Musical for Tyrone Huntley.

"VIVID and COMPELLING. Each new production needs a sprinkling of directorial genius to give it wings. Delightfully, the Open Air Theatre makes this work soar.
Timothy Sheader offers some of the most stylish direction I’ve seen all year”
“AN ALMIGHTY REVELATION
Each song is sung with such feeling that the soul of the piece, so volatile in tempo, comes roaring through.
Superstar’s potency and its Christ-like radicalism – courting sacrilege, achieving an essence of spiritual intensity – is reborn"
"A GORGEOUS, THRILLING, HEAVENLY MUSICAL. Wit, lyricism and satirical bite abound in this dramatic revival of the classic rock opera with a first-rate cast.
An unexpected and considerable pleasure that really rocks"
"The resurrection of the rock opera is cause for celebration”
