Andrew Lloyd Webber will find new Superstar on television

Theatregoers on Whatsonstage.com previously voted for Andrew Lloyd Webber to begin the search for the next Jesus Christ Superstar on television. And it seems that he listened, as Lord Lloyd Webber announced with ITV that they will be conducting the search for the male title star in a revival of his hugely popular biblical musical.

Lloyd Webber’s last reality TV casting programme, Over the Rainbow, found Danielle Hope to play Dorothy in the current West End revival of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium.

Following the conclusion of Over the Rainbow, more than 1,000 avid theatregoers took part in the survey at http://www.whatsonstage.com to vote on the future of such TV programmes and which musical they would most like to see cast in this way next.
