Jesus Christ Superstar on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
New in 2012
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's iconic musical returns to Broadway, with an acclaimed new production directed by two-time Tony-winner Des McAnuff, director of the long-running hit "Jersey Boys."
Closes July 1st.


The Broadway production of Jesus Christ Superstar closed July 1, 2012. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

This is the third Broadway revival of "Jesus Christ Superstar," the ground-breaking rock opera which originally opened on Broadway in 1973. The musical tells the story of the final week of Christ's life, and features the well-known title song, "Superstar," and "I Don't Know How to Love Him," Mary Magdalene's Act I torch song which was subsequently recorded by Helen Reddy, Petula Clark, and many others.

Director Des McAnuff (who won Tony Awards for "Big River" in 1985 and "The Who's Tommy" in 1993, and was nominated for "Jersey Boys" in 2006) mounted this production early in 2011 for the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, and then again for the La Jolla Playhouse in late 2011. Charles McNulty of the LA Times called La Jolla production "tightly focused and beautifully measured." Read his full review here.



It is notable that this production coincides with the revival of another landmark musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, "Evita," and the revival of Stephen Schwartz's "Godspell," which also tells the Gospel story.
