Brandon Boyd, JC Chasez and Michelle Williams combine their talents for ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’

If you went to Catholic school, or just really love 60s era musicals, then odds are you have seen ‘Jesus Christ Superstar,’ and may have had some upbeat Christian songs stuck in your head for a few days. Now the musical is going on tour, with a new lineup of performers to bring it to life.
 
The Andrew Lloyd Webber production will hit fifty-cities, in a giant North American tour that will light-up arenas and venues across North America. All of this singing and dancing will begin on June 9 in New Orleans, with popular frontman Brandon Boyd of Incubus , Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams and JC Chasez from N’Sync taking top-billing.
 
It was yesterday on Good Morning America that Boyd and Williams made the announcement, in the performance Boyd will be taking on the role of Judas. Boyd told GMA, “It’s completely new, and it’s incredible,” he took the stage with Williams and performed “Superstar” with castmate Williams. The role of Mary Magdalene went to Williams and JC is taking on Pontius Pilate.
 
If you are excited to see the new production, you can get tickets starting next week.
 
Tickets are immediately available for American Express card members, public tickets hit on April 11.
