Andrew Lloyd Webber's enduring masterpiece Jesus Christ Superstar plays at the Barbican Theatre for a limited set of 60 shows. The news follows a successful season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in 2016 and another in 2017. Following Jesus during the last seven days of his life, the musical features a famous soundtrack that includes the songs "I Don't Know How to Love Him" and the eponymous "Jesus Christ Superstar". Timothy Sheader directs this latest incarnation, which takes place on the Barbican’s suitably sprawling stage.

This production of Jesus Christ Superstar won the Evening Standard Award for best musical as well as the Olivier Award for best musical revival. The Standard described it as, "some of the most stylish direction seen all year" while The Guardian praised its "wit, lyricism and satirical bite".

Andrew Lloyd Webber has composed 13 musicals as well as two film scores, a Latin Requiem Mass and more. He was knighted in 1992 and has received six Tonys, an Academy Award and seven Olivier Awards, besides many other accolades.

The show's lyrics are the work of lyricist Tim Rice, a long-time collaborator of Lloyd Webber’s. He was also knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and is the recipient of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award, among others.

Timothy Sheader is artistic director at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre but he has directed shows across the globe, including Barnum at Chichester Festival Theatre and My Fair Lady at the Aarhus Teater in Denmark.

Choreography comes from Drew McOnie and musical direction is courtesy of Tom Deering.

Jesus Christ Superstar features Matt Cardle (Strictly Ballroom) as Pilate and Robert Tripolino (Rags the Musical) as Jesus. Sallay Garnett plays Mary and Ricardo Afonso plays Judas, alongside Nathan Amzi and Cavin Cornwall as Annas and Caiaphas.

The show takes one of the most iconic stories in history and presents it with all the drama, mass appeal and melodiousness of the best Lloyd Webber-Rice works. Don't miss this critically acclaimed production when it plays at the Barbican Theatre from 4 July 2019 until 24 August 2019.
