NEW YORK (AP) - The current production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" that's touring the United Kingdom will be able to be seen without a plane ticket.

"Jesus Christ Superstar UK Rock Spectacular" will be shown at hundreds of movie theaters across America on Oct. 29 and again on Nov. 1. The show was recorded on Oct. 4-5 in Birmingham, England.

It stars former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm as Mary Magdalene and Ben Forster in the title role. Forster was the winner of the UK's primetime contest show "Superstar." The cast also includes comedian Tim Minchin, the co-writer of West End smash musical "Matilda."

Another revival of the 1971 Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera on Broadway closed this summer after 116 regular performances and 24 previews.
