First released in 1970 as a rock album musical before it’s Broadway debut in 1971, this rock opera is based loosely on the Gospel stories of the last week of Jesus’s life. The plot largely centers on Judas, who is disapproving of the way Jesus has led his disciples.

Additional musicals will be announced in the coming weeks.
