JCS Rehearsals

With performances starting next Thursday (4 July), take a look at our incredible Superstar cast in rehearsals, and watch their performance at West End Live. View Gallery.

When the original London production of Jesus Christ Superstar premiered in 1972, it became the longest running musical in West End history, beating the record set by Oliver!

Our multi-award winning production started life at the Open Air Theatre in 2016 and, due to demand, returned the following year. In 2018 it played a season at the Lyric Opera of Chicago featuring Cavin Cornwall as Caiaphas; he recreates his performance at the Barbican.

Prior to a two-year North American tour, which starts this autumn, we are excited to bring the production to the Barbican this summer for a limited 60-performance.
