GODSPELL, based on stories and parables from the Gospel of Matthew, follows the last week of Jesus’ life prior to his crucifixion as he tries to teach a lost community of disciples the concept of trust, pure love, compassion and friendship in order to build a brighter future.
Known for its incredible upbeat rock and Gospel score by Broadway legend Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Rags, Pippin and Children of Eden) and featuring such songs as ‘Day by Day’, ‘All Good Gifts’ and ‘Beautiful City’, this newly revised version of Godspell was originally the collaborative creation of a group of Carnegie Mellon University students led by director and original writer John-Michael Tebelak in the early 1970s before becoming a critically acclaimed world phenomenon with productions on and off Broadway, in London, Canada, Australia, Mexico City and recently Brazil. The musical was released as a movie in 1973 starring Victor Garber as Jesus and David Haskell as Judas/John the Baptist. It has also enjoyed much success Off-West End with notable productions playing at the Union Theatre and, again, at the Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre nine years ago.
