Jan. 13-29: Jesus Christ Superstar 

The Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach will stage the musical Jesus Christ Superstar Jan. 13-15, 19-22 and 26-29.  It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ‘60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. All performances are at 8 p.m. except Sunday shows, which are 2 p.m. matinees. For more information, please visit www.nsbplayers.org.
