Jesus Christ Superstar
In 1973, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway stage hit JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR debuted on the big screen, presenting the story of Jesus’ final days and crucifixion as a spectacular rock opera.
The landmark film featured Ted Neeley – who had performed the lead role on Broadway – as Jesus, and Carl Anderson as Judas. Both were nominated for Golden Globes. Among the classic songs featured in the film’s Academy Award-nominated score are “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Hosanna,” and “King Herod’s Song (Try It and See).”
In celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary, Tampa Theatre will welcome Ted Neeley and Kurt Yahjian (who played the priest Annas) for a special live guest appearance! Neeley and Yahjian will introduce the brand-new digital print with newly restored color and sound, sing along with the audience throughout the movie, and host a Q&A with fans after the film.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $125 that also include a JCS gift bag, pre-film reception with Ted Neeley and reserved seats near him during the film. CLICK HERE for VIP tickets.
