PlayBlog   A Preview to Stratford Shakespeare Festival's Jesus Christ Superstar (Video)
Des McAnuff, two-time Tony winner and current artistic director of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, directs Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock musical Jesus Christ Superstar in Stratford, Ontario. Performances began June 3.

Once condemned by some religious groups, the now-classic musical takes us through Jesus' last days on earth, with traitor Judas telling the tale of Jesus being turned over to Pontius Pilate, and the sorrow of his followers, including Mary Magdalene, who sings the hit ballad "I Don't Know How to Love Him."

The cast features Josh Young as Judas, Paul Nolan as Jesus, Tony Award winner Brent Carver as Pontius Pilate and Chilina Kennedy as Mary Magdalene. Jesus Christ Superstar will play through Oct. 29.
