      Bio

      As the most popular modern retelling of the later life of Jesus, Godspell has entertained audiences around the world regardless of religious beliefs. The musical's timeless message of love and friendship, as well as hugely popular songs, have made it a Broadway favorite and received acclaim from numerous theater critics. While Godspell recently spent years on tour dates and in community theaters, it will soon be back on Broadway with a highly anticipated revival in 2011.

      Godspell begins with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist, followed by Jesus teaching the "community", through parables, about how to lead loving lives that will please God. The members of the community all adopt symbols showing that they are now following Jesus, and its members become more closely knit as the parables progress. Jesus makes the parables humorous and casual, and an aura of love surrounds the group as they grow closer. His followers defend him when he is criticized by the Pharisees, and heed his warning before casting out an adulteress from the group. While initially chummy friends, Judas soon plans to betray Jesus for money, and his followers can only watch his death unfold before their eyes.

      While Godspell has no tour dates in 2011, audiences in New York City are eagerly awaiting the brand-new revival coming this fall. Previews of Godspell will begin at the Circle in the Square Theatre on October 13. Though no casting choices have been released, fans still can't wait for this classic musical to return to Broadway in fall 2011.
