‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ returns to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this August
Regent's Park Open Air Theatre have announced their acclaimed production of Jesus Christ Superstar will return to the venue this August in a surprise Summer season. Timothy Sheader's bold revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock-musical premiered at the venue in 2016, returning in 2017 and most recently playing at the Barbican in 2019. Restaged as a 90-minute concert version without an interval, the show will perform for six weeks from 14 August. To comply with social distancing requirements, it will play in front of a reduced-capacity audience of 390 people, a significant reduction from the theatre’s usual 1200 seat capacity. Additional protocols will include compulsory masks for the audience and temperature checks, in addition to one-way traffic and cashless retail systems. Timothy Sheader, the show’s director and artistic director of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre said: “It has been, and continues to be, an incredibly challenging time for everyone working in the theatre industry. While the arts sector awaits details of how the government’s support package will be disseminated, I’m heartened that we have been able to start work again with a number of our colleagues and to employ over 140 people, including 70 performers and freelancers, at least for a brief period this summer.” The surprise summer season follows changes to government guidelines last week which permitted outdoor performances as further lifting of restrictions around covid-19. The season will also feature a series of comedy shows held each Monday with comedians including Russell Brand and Jimmy Carr lined up appear. Casting for the production has yet to be announced. Tickets for Jesus Christ Superstar will go on sale on Tuesday 21 July.
