Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy
Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by
storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved
songs, including "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."
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of
games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs,
ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across
the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of
kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
