Jesus Christ Superstar – Conceptual Theatrical Portraits
Conceptual theatrical portraits for marketing
These conceptual theatrical portraits, inspired by romantic religious paintings, to help promote Fiddlehead Theatre Company’s production at Boston’s Strand. were created as part of the marketing campaign, in Boston and Eastern Massachusetts, for the Fiddlehead Theatre Company production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
The creative team for the production set the story in a post-911 period. Justin Reeves, as Jesus, was dressed and made up to appear as if he had just pulled Mary out of the rubble of a terrorist attack.
The production at Boston’s Strand Theatre, is a powerful retelling of the classic story, rebooted as they say, and set in a post 911 world.

I was approached about about this poster before it had even been cast.
So, strip it down to the basics, make it eye catching and appealing and make it a fantasy. What better fantasy than the cover of a beauty magazine?
