If there was one show I was majorly excited for that I was going to this summer – it was to see the Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Spectacular. It wasn’t so much the show I was excited for – but the fact that we had VIP tickets which meant you were going to meet at least 2 of the 5 leads – one of those 5 leads being JC Chasez of *NSYNC… that I was excited for. It wasn’t a 100% guarantee we were going to meet him – but it was probably as close as we were going to get so it was a gamble that we had to take.
The tour was set to start on Monday – with the cast flying out to start their final rehearsals yesterday. Except on Friday… I got a text from Christine (my partner in crime for this VIP experience) with a photo of a tweet from Ben Forster – who is Jesus in the show.
My heart is broken. My beautiful talented cast and company I adore. This wonderful show & opportunity is over. I’m so sorry I am devastated.
At first we weren’t entirely sure what was going on – but slowly the news was spreading – the arena tour had been canceled and all tickets would be refunded. It’s a very sad situation for the cast, crew and all the fans who were excited to attend.
