What happens when twelve ordinary people are torn apart by the unthinkable death of their leader? In the wake of Jesus Christ's crucifixion, this story of doubt, fear, faith, and ultimately love, explodes with a classic rock score inspired by rock 'n' roll's greatest including U2, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton and Aretha Franklin. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan and award-winning composer Neil Berg's new rock musical tackles one of most powerful stories in history with terrifying honesty, grit and extraordinary, heart-pounding music.
