Synopsis

Australian director Gale Edwards' take on the 1971 Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd Webber musical is based on the London revival, which also played Broadway. Redefined for a contemporary audience, the production rejects quasi-Biblical costumes, psychedelic lighting and hand-mikes for a gritty, police-state world of revolutionary street gangs, in-your-face media, dark Vegas glitz and King Herod in a tux.
