Godspell

Led by the international hit “Day by Day,” Godspell was the first major musical offering from three-time Grammy & Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden). A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
