“Nowhere will you see a better version of Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. Every aspect of the production excels,” Early reviews of The Arts Asylum and This Happy Breed’s first co-production, Jesus Christ Superstar have pronounced. The show opened on Sept 22 and runs through October 12 at the James and Marjory Russell Theatre at The Arts Asylum, 1000 E. 9th Street in downtown Kansas City.
The Arts Asylum’s production features a diverse and nationally renowned cast with Kansas City roots and is being developed and presented by some of Kansas City’s leading theatre artists. Director Kyle Hatley, former Associate Artistic Director at Kansas City Repertory Theatre, has brought a vision of Superstar to Kansas City that transcends the time and space of its setting. The upcoming production aims to bring an immersive, inclusive experience that will resonate with longtime fans of the original and newcomers alike.
According to other reviews, the production is “Passionate, powerful, poignant, phenomenal, professional, polished…” with a “stellar cast, quality band, outstanding sound and beautiful lighting set design and construction.”
