Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz , and it took the world by storm.
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life is told. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
