To inaugurate our 85th season, the Drama League brings the curtain up on Godspell, the classic show fresh from a 2012 Broadway revival update.
Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell is the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden. The show features a comedic troupe of eccentric players who team up with Jesus to teach his lessons in a new age through parables, games, and tomfoolery.
Godspell also features the international hit, “Day by Day”, as well as an eclectic blend of songs ranging from pop to vaudeville, as Jesus’ life is played out onstage. Even after the haunting crucifixion, Jesus’ message of kindness, tolerance and love lives vibrantly on.
Performances are at 8pm on Sept. 15, 16, 22, 23, and at 2pm on Sept. 17 and 24.
