Godspell, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, is coming back to Broadway for the first time, beginning performances Oct. 13 at the Circle in the Square Theatre, prior to an official opening Nov. 3.

Here, Schwartz talks about writing Godspell—his first musical—and how he is looking forward to bringing the production back to Broadway.

Godspell's Tony-nominated score features  "Day by Day," "Turn Back, O Man," "Learn Your Lessons Well, "Prepare Ye the Way" and "Light of the World."

The musical originally ran for more than 2,600 performances in New York and spawned successful touring productions in major U.S. cities, a 1973 motion picture adaptation and countless international engagements for the past 40 years.

The Broadway revival will reunite Daniel Goldstein—making his Broadway directorial debut—and the designers of their critically acclaimed 2006 Paper Mill Playhouse conception in a new production that has been completely re-imagined for the Circle in the Square.
