For fans of the theatre, any opportunity to catch your favourite stars in action is great – there is a certain magic about plays – and not just their transition from wobbly opening nights to fully regal and confident performance treasure – but the atmosphere of theatre in general is one that have to be felt to be appreciated. There are no second takes, and therefore the relationship between audience and actors feels even more fortified.
A treat is in store for Nairobi audiences, with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar” set to transform the Kenya National Theatre from the 7th to the 17th of April.
The story is basically a highlight of the last week of Jesus’ life – which is witnessed through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Iscariot.
The story is in of itself a timeless tale – one that is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of biblical events, and an award-winning rock opera score with songs like “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Superstar”.
