Following its overwhelming sell-out success in 2016 in a six-time Olivier Award-nominated run (winning Magic Radio Best Musical Revival), Jesus Christ Superstar returns to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

Best Actor in a Musical nominee Tyrone Huntley returns as Judas, with Declan Bennett (Jesus), David Thaxton (Pilate) and Peter Caulfield (Herod) also reprising their roles.

Loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life, the show details the interpersonal struggles between Jesus and Judas Iscariot through rip-roaringly powerful and punchy music.

With a renowned score including I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Gethsemane and Superstar, musical direction by Tom Deering and choreography by Drew McOnie, direction from Timothy Sheader, and spectacle, comedy and heart-breaking betrayal in abundance, this production promises an epic experience.

Back for just over one month, this is one final chance to see the smash-hit production in its original home.
