News   Concert Staging of Godspell to Tour U.K. in 2015
 
Godspell — last presented in the West End for a one-night concert gala that was held May 19 at the Lyric Theatre, featuring the orchestrations of the 2011 Broadway revival that ran at the Circle in the Square — is to embark on a 12-week U.K. national tour, beginning performances at London's Hackney Empire April 4, 2015.

The tour will be produced by Russell Scott and Mark Pettitt for Godspell in Concert UK Ltd., with musical direction by Scott and direction by Kenneth Avery Clark. In a press statement, Scott commented, "Producing Godspell In Concert at the Lyric Theatre was an incredible experience and brought the production back to the West End for the first time in 43 years. The new rock score is fantastic and brings the show into the modern day. Since the West End gala, we have worked tirelessly to bring Godspell back to the U.K. and on tour for the first time in almost 10 years in our new semi-staged concert format."

Casting is still to be announced.
