Jesus Christ Superstar
rises again. Blossom Music Center's Porthouse Theatre has resurrected Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's hip-swiveling, hair-shaking musical about the Messiah's last seven days on earth for a three-week run. "I am more excited about this show than I have ever been about any other production," says director Terri Kent. She put her nationwide cast including William Clecker as the son of God through several American Idol
-like auditions before hiring them. "I was looking for Jesus," she laughs, "and I found him in New York."
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: July 29. Continues through Aug. 20
