This is a rare chance to see an English-language musical being performed live in concert.

From the moment the heavy rock chords of the overture take over the auditorium, or in this case a church, you’ll know you’re in for something special.

‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ is the one Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical that even his biggest detractors find impossible to dislike.

Everyone tends to have their own favourite song. From the title track to the show-stopping ‘Gethsemane’, to the jolly ‘King Herod’s Son’ to virtually every song featuring Judas and Caiaphas, this is a musical star’s dream project to work on.

Teatret Gorgerne wowed all-comers when they last performed ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ at Tivoli almost a decade ago.

They will have learned from that experience, so expect another evening of top-level entertainment.

How do you follow a farce about a French cad three-timing air stewardesses? With a Greek tragedy, of course!

Following the success of Boeing-Boeing, CBS Theatre has moved on to Elektra, a dark thriller set after the Trojan War in which a princess avenges the death of her father, King Agamemnon. Exactly! It’s where we get Elektra complex from: the pyschology involved when a woman falls for a man like Dad.

This play demonstrates how twisted a child’s mind can become when they see their loved ones betray each other. (MA)
