A synopsis of the show, released by Theatre Memphis, describes the show as "A Rock Opera. Following the form of a traditional Passion Play, this musical hit is loosely based on the Gospel's account of the last week of the life of Jesus. Melding contemporary attitudes, iconic allusions to modern life, heart-pounding beats and rhythmic ballads have made this show, recently revived on Broadway, a modern day classic."
With music for Jesus Christ Superstar was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice; the show is directed by Kell Christie.
