After finding surprise success with their 1970 concept album Jesus Christ Superstar, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice developed the rock opera into a spirited Broadway production based loosely on the last week of Christ’s life. Sung through in slang-infused show tunes — including the groovy “What’s the Buzz,” title track “Superstar” and torch ballad “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” — the groundbreaking musical presents Christ as something of a celebrity sell-out while shining a forgiving light on his betrayer Judas Iscariot. Rick Sanchez directs The Playhouse’s production.
