Lyrics by TIM RICE Music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
We are excited to confirm the announcement by Stephen Gabriel, President and Executive Producer of Work Light Productions, that our Olivier and Evening Standard Award-winning production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical Jesus Christ Superstar will commence a North American Tour in the Autumn of 2019.
“Superstar speaks to both theatre audiences and concert music fans. This production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring,” said Stephen Gabriel, President of Work Light Productions.
Directed by Timothy Sheader, the creative team also includes Tom Scutt (set and costume design), Drew McOnie (choreography), Tom Deering (music supervision) and Lee Curran (lighting design). The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and Evening Standard Award for Best Musical, selling out two consecutive engagements in 2016 and 2017.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a proven musical phenomenon with a world-wide fan base. As demonstrated by NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, this epic work attracted over 9.6 million viewers, earned the highest ratings in its time period, and received the highest critical ranking of any live musical event on network TV. Now, almost 10 years after the last major tour in the US, this award-winning Regent’s Park production will play over 50 markets throughout North America.
