Members of the press were treated to a special sneak peek at the upcoming revival Godspell on Sept. 26. The show, which begins performances at Circle in the Square on Oct. 13, features Hunter Parrish, Telly Leung, Lindsay Mendez and more.
Conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak with music and new lyrics by Academy and Grammy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), Godspell — a hip musical re-telling of the New Testament's Gospel of Matthew — made its New York City premiere in May 1971. The show was an Off-Broadway and Broadway smash in the 1970s. The Tony-nominated score features the songs "Day by Day," "Turn Back, O Man," "Learn Your Lessons Well, "Prepare Ye the Way," "Light of the World" and many more.
