Following the official opening night of Jesus Christ Superstar, the first reviews are in:

★★★★ “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 Guardian

★★★★ “An almighty revelation” Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “Vivid and compelling. Timothy Sheader offers some of the most stylish direction I’ve seen all year” Evening Standard

★★★★ “ruggedly masculine and flamboyantly fabulous” Time Out

★★★★ “A gritty new Jesus Christ Superstar that might just be the finest musical this venue has yet produced.” The Arts Desk

Matt Lucas, Matthew Bourne and Michael Xavier were among the audience at the performance – take a look at our Opening Night Party Gallery.
