Event Details

What’s the buzz? Audiences are LOVING Patio Playhouse’s rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, running Thursdays through Saturdays through June 30.

Patio Plays in the Park’s rendition this summer is a new take on an old classic, bringing a special flair in its details. There’s the delightful venue under the Escondido night sky, the live rock band, and of course the stylings of an incredibly talented and versatile cast led by Patio newcomers Alyssa Guttendorf (Judas Iscariot) and Mario Arambula-Damian (Jesus Christ), both of whom bring the complexities of their respective roles to dynamic life on stage.

This rock opera, wowing audiences for over 40 years, is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life and, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire.
