The gothic sanctuary at First Baptist Church is about to ROCK! A live rock band will join the Chagrin Falls Studio Orchestra to bring the music of Andrew Llyod Weber and Tim Rice to life.
A little bit about the show. “Jesus Christ Superstar” is a rock opera that depicts the last week of Jesus Christ’s life through the lens of Judas Iscariot.
Composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice, the musical explores the emotional and political complexities surrounding Jesus’ crucifixion. The narrative is driven by Judas’ internal conflict and highlights the relationships between Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and other key figures.
The musical’s contemporary rock score, powerful performances, and thought-provoking themes have made it a classic since its debut in 1970. “Jesus Christ Superstar” has been widely praised for its innovative approach to storytelling and its memorable music.
The show runs from March 15-24th and we look forward to see you then.
