About

Lyric Theatre’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar provides a compelling and raw look at the political messiah who led a movement of peace and love against oppression and brutality. Jesus Christ Superstar has rocked audiences for years with its humanizing look at one of the most influential political dissidents of our history. Resonating today with young people standing up for gun control and climate change – the pushback by those in power hasn’t changed, with leaders calling today’s dissidents, “deeply disturbed messiahs.” Reimagined and envisioned, watch a strong woman play the title role and take on the tragic, compelling times of the last three days of the life of Christ. As The New York Times recently wrote, “The musical pushes back against its own skepticism, depicting the powers-that-be as corrupt, cynical and manipulative, exploiting the anxieties of Judas and the other apostles.”

This show contains mature content, religious references, gender non-conformity, graphic violence and implied suicide.
