For the first time in the history of this renowned Tim Rice/Andrew Lloyd-Webber smash musical it is on tour in the UK. The arena tour kicks off in September at the O2 Arena to celbrate the 40th anniversary of first opening in London’s West End.
Tim Minchin, award-winning musical comedian and co-writer of Matilda the Musical, is confirmed to play the role of Judas Iscariot and pop icon and former Spice Girl Melanie C will take the female lead role of Mary Magdalene. BBC Radio 1′s presenter Chris Moyles will make his major stage debut as King Herod. This is set to be one of the biggest and most impressive arena tours of the year.
As with other recent Lloyd-Webber musicals there will be an ITV show “Superstar” which will again give the UK public the chance to decide who will play the lead role of Jesus. As before there will be a panel of judges for the live shows, led by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber
