The first collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be performed on the professional stage, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is one of the most popular and enduring works ever created for the musical theatre. Featuring such notable songs as Superstar, Everything’s Alright and I Don’t Know How to Love Him, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR earned five TONY nominations.
Set in two acts, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

Perpetually changing the face of musical theatre JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, will leave audiences captivated by its power.
As relevant and timeless as ever, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, the rock opera vision of “the greatest story ever told,” is perhaps more potent in today’s troubled world than when it was first produced.

While Ted has enjoyed a distinguished career in resident theatres throughout America, appearing in a wide variety of productions from Hair to the works of Samuel Beckett he is world renowned for the title role in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. Creating a fan base that borders on a cult-like phenomenon, this production heralds the long awaited triumphant return of Ted Neeley in the title role of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.
