Based on the New Testament.

Synopsis

The zeal with which Christ’s followers are hailing him as the Son of God has become a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervour will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal.

Trivia & History

The first traced staged production was in June 1971 by students at Southold High School in Southold, New York. Countless unauthorized productions sprung up around that time. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice brought many lawsuits against these production, eventually shutting down several hundred of them before the Broadway premiere.
