'Jesus Christ Superstar' making Pittsburgh stop
A Pittsburgh stop has been added to the new, national arena tour of “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
The revival of the 40-year-old Broadway musical was announced last week. It will have an all-star cast, including Brandon Boyd, lead vocalist of rock band Incubus, as Judas Iscariot; JC Chasez, of ‘NSYNC, as Pontius Pilate; Michelle Williams, formerly of Destiny's Child, as Mary Magdalene; and former Sex Pistols lead singer John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon as King Herod. British actor and singer Ben Forster, who played the lead role in the U.K. and Australian arena tours of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” will revive his role as Jesus.
The 50-city tour kicks off June 9 in New Orleans and comes to Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh on Aug. 12, before wrapping up in Philadelphia on Aug. 16.
Ticket prices and on sale dates for the Pittsburgh show have not been determined yet.
