(By Matt – Senior Programmer/Producer) In a previous life I was a musical theatre performer and Jesus Christ Superstar was my first ‘big’ show out of drama school. So if you saw the show on UK Tour (including a run at the Manchester Opera House) in 2001 I was in it. It was news to me even then – getting so close to the show – that Andrew Lloyd Webber could possibly have ever written anything so cool and unconventional as Jesus Christ Superstar. We all felt like rock stars backstage when the opening guitar riff kicked things off each night. And the response at the end was always amazing. As an introduction to the industry I couldn’t have asked for more. It’s still great to revisit it and we would love to bring it to The Lowry one day. For now, make do with the arena show, starring Ben Forster who spent a lot of time at The Lowry in Elf!
A new musical will be released every Friday at 7pm BST, for 48 hours only, so make sure you don’t miss out! On Good Friday, join us for Jesus Christ Superstar Live Stage Show starring Tim Minchin, Mel C and Chris Moyles! Join us right here to sing along!
