Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar will be transferring to London’s Barbican Theatre in 2019.

Jesus Christ Superstar

It has been announced that, following its sell-out success in 2016 and 2017 at the Open Air Theatre, Jesus Christ Superstar will be opening at the Barbican Theatre in London for 60 performances in 2019.

The show will open on 4th July and run until 24th August before heading to the USA for a North American Tour in the Autumn.

Public booking opens on 16th November 2018. Details of group rates have not yet been announced.

What Jesus Christ Superstar is all about

The musical recounts Jesus Christ’s last days from the perspective of one of his disciples, Judas. Judas feels Christ’s power is getting out of control and that his following will be a threat to the Roman Empire. Judas helps identify Jesus to the Roman soldiers, which leads to his arrest.

The musical features songs such as Jesus Christ Superstar, The Temple, Heaven On Their Minds and Everything’s Alright.

Casting information will be announced in due course.
