Based on the
Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by
Stephen Schwartz, "Godspell" boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by
the international hit, "Day By Day." As the cast performs "Prepare Ye
The Way Of The Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All For The Best,"
"All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side," the parables of
Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.
Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime,
charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, "Godspell" is a groundbreaking and
unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness,
tolerance and love.
