Jesus Christ Superstar: The All-Trans Recasting
On June 30, the National Queer Arts Festival and Queer Cultural Center are thrilled to host, for one night only, the voices and music of San Francisco’s amazing trans and non-binary community. In our reimagined version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s radical rock opera, Jesus, Judas, and Mary Magdalene are recast as trans women, featuring Leah Ann Mitchell, Mya Byrne, and Tajah J, along with other trans and non-binary… arts community members including Fureigh, Pax Ahimsa Gethen, Dominique Leslie, and Mason J, joined by members of the Lesbian and Gay Chorus of San Francisco, plus special out-of-town guests Riley Silverman and Adam Plant.
The original JCS was an allegory for the social change of the 70s. With our trans recasting and chorus of queer allies, we hope to allude to current social change and highlight the ways in which queer and trans people have always led the fight against the status quo. Staging the Passion with trans people in the Bay's queer activist community in 2018 questions the common way this story is told, while showcasing the underrepresented trans, nonbinary and queer theatrical and musical professionals who are so often denied the kind of employment we absolutely deserve.
