The rock opera that’s traveled the world since 1970 arrives in Omaha with John Gajewski as Jesus and Roderick Cotton as Judas. The raw treatment of Christ’s last seven days on earth including his betrayal by Judas Iscariot and his crucifixion and ascension features such memorable songs as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” by Mary and “Superstar” by Judas and the ensemble.
