Cape Town Theatre Guide – 27 Oct to 02 Nov

Jesus Christ Superstar

Northlink College presents an authentic version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1970’s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar. It is based on the Bible’s account of the last week of Jesus’s life on earth. However the story gets told from a fictional, human perspective: that of Judas who possibly grappled with finding answers to the issues of the time as a human.
