Godspell: June 22 – 27
Godspell was the first major musical from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Told in a series of parables, Godspell is a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew. A group of followers help Jesus to share various lessons through song and dance before dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life in Godspell—a sensational musical that continues to inspire audiences today.
