The iconic rock musical that changed everything then, cast with the gender that’s changing everything now. Based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life, Jesus Christ Superstar imagines the humanity of Jesus and Judas’ role on the sidelines in search of the limelight. The timeless score and story make this Jesus Christ Superstar a 2,000-year-old tale fit for 2018.

 

“Ray of Light Theatre once again proves that this is the Bay Area company that puts on the musical stage what most other companies would never risk, probably not even consider.” –Theatre Eddys

 

“Janelle LaSalle as Jesus is cipher to her crowd of followers, always looking at them but seeing something else, as if a panorama of the universe clouds her eyeballs. Her belt pierces like a saber, mustering a force that could part seas.” – Lily Janiak, SF Chronicle
