The Erie Playhouse is presenting one of the most popular shows to ever hit the stage. The Erie Playhouse production of Jesus Christ Superstar opens tonight at 7:30pm. The show will run weekends up until June 29th.

This is the third time the playhouse has performed Superstar, but the producing director for the playhouse, Richard Davis says this time around, Almi Clerkin is directing the show and the audience will come away with a whole new experience. "A show like superstar is open to interpretation. the show doesn’t have to be set in biblical times, it can be set anywhere, it's not like a show like South Pacific when you are trapped into a specific setting this time it's going to be different so the audience gets a different experience, it will be much more modern, the last time it was much more traditional"
