    "Jesus Christ Superstar" has been on Broadway and in the movies, and has been seen by millions since its creation in 1970 by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice. Next Friday, on Easter weekend, the same weekend that the rock opera has its setting, it will be performed at The Rudyard Kipling by local musicians. 

    "Jesus Christ Superstar," which tells the story of the last few days of Jesus's life as well as his resurrection, will be performed at The Rudyard Kipling on April 3-4. Friday's performance starts at 9 p.m. and Saturday's performance begins at 8 p.m. Next weekend's performance includes only the music. It is not a theatrical performance.
