Lyrics by Tim Rice | Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber | Starring Matt Cardle

The multi award-winning production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar is back. 

Originally written as a rock opera album, Jesus Christ Superstar made its explosive debut on the Broadway stage in 1971. The show transferred to the West End the following year where it ran for eight years and went on to become one of the most enduring musicals of its time.

Following two sell-out seasons at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre – where it won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, and Evening Standard Award for Best Musical - this "gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical" (Guardian) comes to the Barbican for just 60 performances from 4 July 2019.

Completely blown away from the opening solo note to the dramatic silence at the end before the rupture of applause! Amazing vocals worthy of a soundtrack. Just fantastic!

Fantastic show! I think it's important to remind people where safety exits are in case of any emergencies on the night and people should be discouraged about the use of mobile phones & the taking of persistent selfies announcements should be made in auditorium at the beginning of the show that all mobile phones should be switched off to allow people to get the most out of the performance and really enjoy the night without any invasions/distractions!
