'Superstar' coming to US cinemas

The current production of Jesus Christ Superstar that is currently on tour will be able to be seen in the US.

Jesus Christ Superstar UK Rock Spectacular will be shown at hundreds of cinemas across America on October 29 and again on November 1. The show was recorded on October 4-5 in Birmingham.

It stars former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm as Mary Magdalene and Ben Forster - winner of the show Superstar - in the title role.

The cast also includes comedian Tim Minchin, the co-writer of West End smash musical Matilda.

Another revival of the 1971 Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera on Broadway closed this summer after 116 regular performances and 24 previews.
