(TEANECK, NJ) -- Teaneck New Theatre presents Jesus Christ Super Star, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with music by Tim Rice and directed by Lisa Dascoli at the Hackensack Cultural Arts Center August 11-13 and August 18-21. This iconic rock opera, which opened on Broadway in 1971, recalls the events leading to the crucifixion of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Judas, his betrayer.
As Christ’s followers grew more fervent, Judas made a choice between faith and betrayal. This Broadway musical is filled with an exciting mix of musical styles that draws upon 1970's rock, gospel and funk themes, with high energy dance and powerful storytelling. It’s sung through with no spoken dialogue- the emphasis is on the relationship between friends, enemies and followers in a pivotal moment in history, as each character discovers something about themselves.
Showtimes are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. For further info contact: 201-254-7760 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve tickets. All tickets are $18; for group sales contact:201-913-1376
