About Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar plot deals with Jesus’ last days in the company of his disciples. It is a loosely based account of Judas Iscariot, where he explains his concerns and disagreements with Jesus. The opera is the representation of the author’s take on the whole event. The audience is given an opportunity to look at the event from a different perspective. Judas perception is at the crux of the plot where he conveys to the audience about his reservations and his concerns about his prophet’s direction. The plot gives a new viewpoint of the events leading up to the eventual crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Throughout the performance the audience is reminded frequently about the fact that the plot deals with Judas interpretation and should be taken as a form of entertainment.

Although Jesus Christ Superstar was nominated for five Tony Awards in the same year, they failed to take any home. The performance also received a Tony nomination in the year 2000 for Best Revival of a Musical.
