Rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar heads to New Wimbledon Theatre

Ground-breaking rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar is heading to Wimbledon this week.

Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.

Glenn Carter returns as Jesus, having played the role in the West End, on Broadway and on film.

He will join forces with X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji who plays Mary Magdalene and Australian actor Tim Rogers, who made his UK stage debut 15 years ago, will take on the role of Judas.

As compelling today as it was at its inception more than 40 years ago, Jesus Christ Superstar features some of musical theatre’s most legendary songs including I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, Gethsemane and Superstar.

This production is the latest collaboration between directors Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright, who previously joined forces to bring to life iconic musicals including Blood Brothers and Evita.
