‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ Rock Out
7/19/2016, 5:06 p.m.
Jesus Christ Superstar, the spectacular musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, will open Friday, July 21st at Post 5 Theatre, 1666 S.E. Lambert in Sellwood. It will be the first time in 20 years the show has been produced theatrically with a professional cast in Portland.
The rock opera tells the story of Jesus from Judas’ point of view. Energetic, powerful, and propelled by a stirring score, the play illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. Because of violent content, the production is not recommended for children.
Performances are at 8 p.m. each Thursday through Sunday through Aug. 20. Admission is $20. Tickets will be available at the door or may be purchased at boxofficetickets.com.
