The Broadway performer who plays Judas in the touring Jesus Christ Superstar show has been charged with breaching the US capitol.

James D. Beeks, a musical theater actor with multiple Broadway credits was arrested on charges related to the January 6th in Washington. Officials allege the 49-year-old he was part of the mob that attacked law enforcement on the Capitol.

Earlier this week, Beeks was was still listed on the Jesus Christ Superstar’s U-S tour cast page. Federal investigators apparently attended several performances this month to observe him.

His other Broadway credits include Kinky Boots and he’s also a self-described Michael Jackson tribute artist.

The U.S. touring production company suspended Beeks from its ensemble after the charges were announced.
