“If you knew all that i knew, you’d know the truth…”

Loosely based on the last days of Jesus Christ, this iconic and controversial musical theatre classic tells the story of his personal struggles with Judas, the disciples, God, and himself.  Told from multiple perspectives through a charged, emotional score of rock, gospel, folk, and funk, this production reveals the heartbreaking tale about what we struggle with as human beings. How we hurt each other. And how we can save each other. Not through divinity. But through humanity.
