Albert Verlinde has today, on the 75st anniversary of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, announced that Edwin Jonker and Alex Klaasen will star as Pilate and Herod in the iconic musical Jesus Christ Superstar. After it was previously announced that there are leading roles for Jeangu Macrooy (Jesus), Freek Bartels (Judas) and Magtel de Laat (Maria), the theater producer is proud of his star cast. Ticket sales for Jesus Christ Superstar are open from today.

Together with Senf Theater Productions and Jaco Kaasschieter, Albert Verlinde produces this legendary musical, directed by Ivo van Hove. ‘In Edwin Jonker and Alex Klaasen we have two fantastic actors,’ says Albert Verlinde. ‘They have earned their spurs in various disciplines and are a real added value for this performance. This is a star cast of which I am very proud.’

Alex Klaasen, winner of no fewer than six Musical Awards, is looking forward to his role as Herod. ‘And to the collaboration with Ivo van Hove, who will be directing this performance. He always knows how to take a production to a higher level and get the most out of the cast. That must be fantastic to be a part of that.’ Edwin Jonker agrees with Alex. ‘When you see who all participate in this performance, you can speak of big names who can play and sing fantastically. Proud to be able to participate.’

For Jesus Christ Superstar, Tim Rice wrote the lyrics and Andrew Lloyd Webber the music. The album sold over seven million copies worldwide. Jesus Christ Superstar was on display in London’s West End for eight consecutive years from 1972. On Broadway, the performance was nominated for five Tony Awards. The story has also been filmed twice.

Jesus Christ Superstar will premiere on January 21, 2024 at the DeLaMar Theater Amsterdam and can then be seen in 21 theaters for only 7 months. Ticket sales are open from today.
