Jesus Christ Superstar at Paramount
This is not just the story of the last 7 days of the greatest idol in history. It’s the story of the close friend who tried to save him and why that friend eventually betrayed him. This is a story of love and fear, a story of kindness and greed, a story of expectations and what happens when those expectations are not met. This is an energized rock opera that delves into the internal struggles of those mortals, those humans – including Jesus himself – as they drew closer to one of the most pivotal moments in history. It’s an emotionally-charged journey in which, in the end, each person discovers something about themselves when the stakes are at their highest.
What began as a rock opera concept album (which dominated the U.S. charts upon its 1970 release) transformed into a global stage phenomenon that garnered 7 Tony Award nominations in the U.S. and endless awards overseas in its 40-plus years. And while thousands of productions have taken the stage in 31 different countries, rest assured, this is the production the theater community around the country will be talking about this Spring. Be a part of the conversation.
Trip includes transportation by Park District bus, and show. Lunch is on your own at a local restaurant. Minimal walking.
Please register by Tues, Apr. 4.
