When: June 12-18, 8:15 p.m. 2017
The Muny launches its 99th season with the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice sensation Jesus Christ Superstar. The rock musical tells the story of Jesus and his apostles in the days leading up to the crucifixion. As Jesus faces interference from the Roman governor, he must also deal with dissent from one of his closest companions — the apostle Judas. All the while, Jesus knows what will happen next: who among his disciples will deny him publicly, who among them will betray him, and the inevitability of his earthly demise. Jesus Christ Superstar is performed at 8:15 p.m. Monday to Sunday (June 12 to 18) at the Muny in Forest Park (www.muny.org). Tickets are $15 to $95.
