Jesus Christ Superstar tickets have been available in one form or another
since 1970, and this theater classic is making a return to the stage.
This classic, written by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice,
is a somewhat modern look at the last two weeks of the life of Jesus
Christ. However, there are several twists and references that add a
unique quality to the production, and this innovation is just one of the
reasons that this musical is one of the most successful of all time.

About the Story

The story begins with a monologue from Judas Iscariot, the apostle who
ultimately betrays Jesus. Judas is concerned that the movement that’s
following Jesus is getting too large as they are about to converge on
Jerusalem, and Judas’ main fear is that there will be consequences for
this rising popularity.

Jesus is seen as extremely human in this production, and he grows annoyed
by his followers’ constant questions as they proceed towards Jerusalem.
Mary Magdalene appears as well, and she is the comforting force for Jesus
as he presses on in his revolution.

Much as the story appears in the Bible, word of Jesus and his followers
reaches the high priests, and they become concerned with Jesus’ ability
to form factions and garner a following that could bring the high
priests’ power into question. The high priests decide to do something
about it.

Judas decides to cooperate with the high priests in turning Jesus in to
them, and he does so under a great cloud of shame. Judas expresses his
guilt both to the high priests and to God in moments of prayer, but none
of these attempts at reconciliation are enough for Judas to feel absolved
from his guilt. As a result, Judas hangs himself.
Jesus Christ Superstar tickets, however, are much more than just a
reenactment of the stories of the Bible. There are several examples of
modern slang present in both the lyrics and the dialogue, and there are
also several subtle references to modern-day political movements. Webber
and Rice make the attempt to “modernize” the story of the crucifixion,
and they pull it off with aplomb.

If you’ve never seen an Andrew Lloyd Webber play, and you’ve never
secured Jesus Christ Superstar tickets, you’re missing out on an entirely
new way of looking at the age-old biblical tales that have fascinated
scholars, worshippers and now thespians for many, many years.
