Jesus Christ Superstar, the spectacular musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, will open July 21st at Post 5 Theatre in Sellwood. It’s been over twenty years since this show has been produced theatrically with a professional cast in Portland. This production will be like none you’ve ever seen. With musical direction by Matt Insley, this show features the talents of Ernie Lijoi, Ithica Tell, Jessica Tidd, and many more. Following the critically acclaimed and audience revered The Rape of Lucrece, this is yet another collaboration between Streeter, Insley, and Tidd.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera that tells the story of Jesus from Judas’ point of view. This production will explore the relationship between Jesus and Mary in a way never before depicted. Energetic, powerful, and a rockin’ musical, it has at its center a religious leader who is a social and political rebel. Jesus Christ’s meteoric rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. Jesus begins to believe the hype. As Christ’s teachings are embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge, and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. This will be an inspiring and compelling evening of theater. The show has violent content and is not recommended for children.

The show runs Thursdays through Sundays from July 21st to August 20th at Post5 Theater in Sellwood. All performances are at 8PM. The show runs about two hours including a fifteen-minute intermission.

    For Christ’s sake pick me!! I had a Big time crush on the actor who played Christ in the musical growing up. I will pray every night that I win tickets and say a million Hail Marys.

  19. Naomi Broome July 19, 2016 at 6:48 pm #

    Winning tix to this would be hubby’s dream come true, and would provide me with enough plot context that he would no longer have to explain each song to me as we listen to the sound track as we puzzle. Pretty please let’s stop the plot-splaining!

    When I was 17, this show was “cancelled” in Memphis, The big city in the Bible Belt was not about to let this happen. I love the music and would love to see the production.

    I would love to see this production! I remember my parents changing their minds & not permitting me to see the original decades ago. These tickets would definitely make up for that!

  35. Mark Holan July 22, 2016 at 8:35 am #

    This is my all time favorite production. I still own the original cast recording with Ian Gillian and Murray Head. I got to see it here in 2003 or 2004 when it went on tour. Also, my hometown playhouse put it on and I was very lucky to be cast as King Herod. My wife would truly love to see this live as I talk about this show quite often

  36. Judy Wiebe July 22, 2016 at 9:22 am #

    Saw it 20 years ago in Portland and I am dying to see the changes time will make.

  37. Rusty L August 18, 2016 at 3:17 pm #

    Oh… This has been on my must see list for a while!

  38. Jeannette Phegley August 18, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

    Saw the movie about 50 times since it came out in the 70’s and know all the songs. I love love love “Jesus Christ Superstar”.
