Cotuit Center for the Arts presents "Jesus Christ Superstar" opens 3/9

Cotuit Center for the Arts presents

March 9, 2018 7:30 pm

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, as largely told from Judas’ perspective. The Tony Award-winning score includes hit songs “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane,” “Heaven on Their Minds,” “Everything’s Alright,” “King Herod’s Song,” and “Superstar.”
Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
Directed by Stephen Colella and Rebecca Riley, Music Direction by Malcolm Granger, Choreography by Laura Shea.

Cotuit Center for the Arts presents 2nd Wednesday Theater 3/14

March 14, 2018 7:30 pm

A monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classic, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

On March 14, we will feature a staged reading of the screenplay for John Ford’s The Quiet Man. After accidentally killing an opponent in the ring, boxer Sean Thornton (played by John Wayne in the film) leaves America and returns to his native Ireland, hoping buy his family’s homestead and live in peace. In doing so, he runs afoul of Will Danaher, who long coveted the property. Spitefully, Will objects when his fiery sister Mary Kate begins a romance with Sean, and refuses to hand over her dowry. Mary Kate refuses to consummate the marriage until Sean retrieves the money.
