After a year of limitations due to COVID-19, the popular ACT (A Contemporary Theatre) of Connecticut is fully opening its doors to live audiences and is thrilled to announce its upcoming 2021–2022 season. The season features four spectacular shows: Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Nickel Mines, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rent!
This timeless rock opera follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life as seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary, his disciples, and the Roman Empire. This iconic 1970’s rock score contains such well-known numbers as “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Gethsemane.” A true global phenomenon that has been wowing audiences for 50 years!
Special Opening Night Performance: Saturday, March 26 at 8pm – Special Opening Night performance tickets include an exclusive pre-show cocktail reception in the lobby of the theater catered by Bernard’s / Sarah’s Wine Bar. Hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and other beverages will be available to opening night guests, beginning at 7pm.

You’ll be amongst the show’s creative team members, reviewers, and other ACT patrons who love being “the first”!
