The special staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar opened on 14 August with a reduced capacity of 390 seats and 90-minute running times with no interval.
To meet government guidance on social distancing, there will be 9 performances a week, across the 6-week run, to make the production economically viable. Therefore the roles of Jesus, Judas and Mary will be double-cast, giving audiences the opportunity to see any combination of actors as they alternate performances (a schedule will not be confirmed in advance to allow for flexibility).
Declan Bennett and Pepe Nufrio will play the role of Jesus, Tyrone Huntley and Ricardo Afonso will play the role of Judas and Anoushka Lucas and Maimuna Memon both reprise their Open Air Theatre performances as Mary.
