TITLE: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
FORMAT: 20 x 12.5 inches
VENUE: PALACE THEATRE Shaftesbury Avenue, London.
PRODUCTION CREDITS: Paul Nicholas, Stephen Tate, Dana Gillespie. Directed by Jim Sharman. Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
NOTES: Rock opera with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. POSTER for the first London production which opened at the Palace Theatre in London in 1972. It ran for eight years and became the United Kingdom's longest-running musical at the time. Design by David Byrd. This fabulous psychedelic POSTER was used only for the initial run of performances and was later changed for a more stylised typographical design. This David Byrd designed POSTER is rare and is, perhaps, one of the most sought after West End theatre posters from this era.
CONDITION: Grade A. Rolled (but has been stored flat since new). Very slight creases and small area of paper lift at tip of bottom right corner. Old tape removal mark on reverse side. All else near fine.
