News   PHOTO CALL: Brian Yorkey-Helmed Jesus Christ Superstar, With Rotating Jesus and Judas, at Village Theatre
 
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Jesus Christ Superstar, directed by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal co-creator Brian Yorkey, began performances May 11 at the Village Theatre in Issaquah, WA.

Michael K. Lee (Broadway's Pacific Overtures, Miss Saigon, Rent) and Aaron Finley alternate in the roles of Jesus and Judas for the production, which runs in Issaquah through July 3 and in Everett from July 8-31.

"When we were looking to cast Jesus and Judas, we realized that both characters are, in many ways, two sides of the same coin," Yorkey said in a statement.

Here is a look at the performance:

"One of the most powerful messages of Jesus Christ Superstar is the profound impact of our choices. Keeping this in mind, we’ve decided to embrace a unique approach and cast both Michael K. Lee and Aaron Finley to share the roles of Jesus and Judas. By alternating performances, both actors will enjoy a great artistic challenge that will serve to bring each audience a unique experience."

Lee and Finley are joined by Nicholas Beach, Jordon Anthony Bolden, Elise Lenna Campello, Khanh Doan, Ashley Fitzsimmons, Andrew W. Garrett, Timothy Glynn (Annas), LaVon Hardison, Darrell Hokuf, Eric Polani Jensen (Caiaphas), Timothy M. Keller, Josh Krupke, Matthew S. Lawrence, Jessica Low, Christian Rey Marbella, Henry Nettleton, Michael Nicholas, Jennifer Paz (Mary Magdalene), James Scheider, John David Scott, Adam Somers, Greg Stone (Pontius Pilate), Matthew Wade, Troy L. Wageman, Brandon Whitehead (King Herod) and William A. Williams.
