Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical hit Jesus Christ Superstar comes to Charleston, WV, presented by the Charleston Light Opera Guild.

Jesus Christ Superstars features music composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Tim Rice. It is loosely based on the Gospel’s account of last week of Jesus Christ’s life, as told from the perspective of Judas. Conceived in the 1970’s, it has cultural references, musical styles, and slang of the era.
