As they cover each teaching, they explore how the lessons resonate with current times, and continue Jesus’ message of respect, faith and forgiveness, even in instances of betrayal.
The first major hit for three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), Godspell is a contemporary take on the iconic religious figure’s core principles of kindness, love and tolerance.
The Tony Award-nominated score features some of musical theater’s most iconic anthems such as “Day by Day,” “All Good Gifts,” and “Beautiful City,” Godspell promises to be a touching, sensational addition to the 2023 season.
