'Superstar' a rocking take on the Passion
DeKALB – Stage Coach Players opens its 67th season on Thursday, March 14 with a production of rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. March 14-16 and 21-23 and 2 p.m. March 17, 23 and 24 at Stage Coach Theater, 126 S. Fifth St. in DeKalb.
“Jesus Christ Superstar” has been a Broadway favorite since the 1970s. Its thrilling score includes such memorable hits as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.” Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities pervade the lyrics and references to modern life are scattered throughout the show.
“One of the most difficult aspects of directing this show is the fact that the subject of religion is intensely personal, and each person has his/her own thoughts regarding the life and death of Jesus,” director Jan Kuntz said.
