Broadway's Jesus Christ Superstar to Close on 1st July?

LATEST NEWS: now confirmed that Jesus Christ Superstar will close on Broadway on 1st July.

Stratford Shakespeare Festival's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's  musical Jesus Christ Superstar opened on Broadway on March 22nd and received Tony, Drama Desk and Drama League Award nominations for Best Musical Revival, but it is due to close there on 1st July unless bookings pick up.

Hope it fares better in the UK with Lord Lloyd Webber's  search for someone to play Jesus due to start on ITV this summer and the Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour staring Tim Minchin, Chris Moyles and Mel C due to start on 21st September.
