Musical News: West End impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber has announced that Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood will play Pontius Pilate in a new stage version of Jesus Christ Superstar.
The DJ will play the Governor of Judea, who foresees the events of Jesus’ crucifixion from beginning to aftermath in a dream and then finds himself being presented with that very situation.
“It’s a situation that the Big Dog can relate to,” Westwood went on to say. “Like Pilate, I also had a dream – I was at a motorway service station late one night trying to eat an M&S salad without any kind of cutlery, then the next night I found that’s exactly what went down – straight blazin’.”
