The rock opera also earned two Drama Desk Award nominations last week – one for Best Revival of Musical and one for Best Sound Design for Steve Canyon Kennedy.
Jesus Christ Superstar originated in Stratford as part of the Festival’s 2011 season and was an instant hit. The show then travelled to La Jolla, California, to perform a six-week run at the La Jolla Playhouse over the holidays. It arrived in New York in February and opened officially on Broadway on March 22.
The Drama Desk Awards will take place on June 3 and the Tony Awards will be given out on June 10.
Congratulations to all, and we wish you great success this awards season.
