Just in time for the Easter season, Jesus Christ Superstar, directed by the dynamic Renee Robinson, is playing at the Center for the Arts in downtown Murfreesboro.
An Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice classic, this rollicking and colorful show tells the story of Jesus in two acts coming in at just under two hours.
With an outstanding cast and crew, the show’s star is Jesus, played by John David Welch. Standout vocal performances include Natalie Klein as Mary Magdalene and Jimmy Saiz as Judas.
Modernized dance numbers and interesting stage performances give theater goers their money’s worth. From the Pharisee priests dressed in all-black suits to the angry mob being corralled by black “Security” T-shirt-wearing bouncers, you won’t want to miss this stunning show. Particularly mesmerizing is “King Herod’s Song,” sung by David Cummings and a cast of 1920s-style flappers. The apostles are alternately charming and powerful with voices and personalities to spare.
This is another strong production by the Center for the Arts with a fully dedicated and devoted cast of community volunteers.
The show continues at 7:30 p.m. March 29 and 30, and 2 p.m. March 31. Click here for tickets.
