“Jesus Christ Superstar is the ultimate rock opera! There are numerous standout performances in this very talented ensemble. Music, choreography, costumes and lighting are all terrific! It is one of our FEATURED events. GO!” – Performing Arts LIVE
The musical that launched the careers of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice and ushered in a new era in musical theater will open DOMA Theatre Company’s 2015 season. Helmed by director Marco Gomez and musical director Chris Raymond, the duo behind DOMA productions of Dreamgirls (LADCC and LA Weekly Awards, L.A. Times “Critic’s Choice”) and Young Frankenstein.
The ground-breaking rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Race is the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth — told through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Iscariot. As Jesus’ radical teachings become increasingly embraced by the populace and his fame approaches superstar status, the zeal with which his followers hail him as the Son of God becomes a source of dismay to Judas. Fearing that this tide of religious fervor will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, the disciple must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal.
A ground-breaking rock opera that reinvented musical theater for the modern age, Jesus Christ Superstar is the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth — told through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Iscariot. As Jesus’ radical teachings become increasingly embraced by the populace and his fame approaches superstar status, the zeal with which his followers hail him as the Son of God becomes a source of dismay to Judas.
“We made Judas a type of Everyman,” explained Rice in an interview. “He did not think of himself as a traitor. What Judas was worried about was that as Christ got bigger and bigger and more popular, people began switching their attentions from what he was saying to Christ himself. Judas was terrified. He reckoned that if the movement got too big, the Romans who were occupying Israel would come down and clobber them.”
