Theatre Review: Jesus Christ Superstar - Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney (07.06.13)

Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the most loved rock operas in history. Penned by the renowned Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, it was first staged on Broadway in 1971. The plot is based loosely on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life, and focuses on the struggle between Judas Iscariot and Jesus. The cleverness with which the plot has been portrayed has led it to become a favourite across all generations. This production of Jesus Christ Superstar, featuring Tim Minchin as Judas and Melanie C as Mary Magdalene, is an astoundingly creative production that deserves the hype surrounding it.
