'JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR'
7:30 p.m., Fri.-Sat; 2:30 p.m. Sun; Weekend Theatre. $18.

Despite being widely panned by religious groups for being, in their eyes, sacrilegious, during its 1971 debut, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's biblical rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar" has been running strong for 39 years, enjoying loads of Tony awards, inestimable numbers of productions and the guarantee that at least 20 copies of the soundtrack lurk in the permanent collection of every single used record store you'll ever visit. This month, the Weekend Theatre invites the musical into its home, with director Jamie Scott Blakey placing the 25 actors in the production into a more "political than spiritual" angle. Regardless of interpretation, expect for JCS classics like "I Don't Know How To Love Him" and "Everything's Alright" to fill the stage space during its run. Jesus, Judas, Mary and the whole dang gang will rock out every weekend through July 3.
