One of the most progressive and innovative musicals in history, Godspell tells the story of a fractured, hostile and disconnected community that finds hope, common ground and understanding by embracing a message of radical love.
A modern fable that weaves together direct address, vaudevillian comedy, musicianship, improvisation, and superb pop and rock songs like ‘Day By Day’, ‘All For The Best’, ‘Light of the World’, and ‘Beautiful City, Godspell is a uniquely joyful and uplifting theatrical experience.
The first major musical theatre work from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), Godspell remains as unconventional and iconoclastic as when it premiered off-Broadway 50 years ago. This dynamic new production from director Richard Carroll (Calamity Jane, Spamalot) and musical director Victoria Falconer (Lizzie, Once) brings together a spectacularly talented ensemble of singers, actors, musicians, and improvisers to create a radical, inclusive, human, Rock-and-Roll Cabaret Gospel for our times.
