JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR opened on Broadway on October 12, 1971, at the Mark Hellinger Theatre and was the first musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber to be produced on the professional stage.

The original Broadway cast recording starring Ian Gillan (Jesus), Murray Head (Judas) and Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene) topped the American album charts three times.

Ted Neeley headlined the first touring company that opened at the Universal Studios Amphitheater on June 28, 1972.  The national tour also starred Carl Anderson and Heather MacRae.

On August 9, 1972 the London production opened.  Closing eight years and 3,358 performances later, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, had become the longest running musical in West End history.

In 1973, Academy Award winning director Norman Jewison directed the motion picture version of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, starring Ted Neeley.  The film was shot on location in Israel.

Directed by Gale Edwards and designed by John Napier, a new production opened in the Lyceum Theatre in the fall of 1996.  The production was then re-worked and re-designed to tour the United Kingdom in 1998 and 1999.  The show played Dublin in August, 1999, and in January, 2000, opened at the Coliseum Theatre in Essen, Germany, for a six month run.

 JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR earned a TONY nomination for best musical revival for the production that opened April 16, 2000, at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts.  Both US and UK tours followed.

Ted Neeley reprises the role he is most associated with in the national tour of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.  Directed by Dallett Norris and choreographed by Arlene Phillips, the latest production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR will prove it is as relevant and timeless as ever.
