Spanish theatre Teatro del Soho CaixaBank has joined forces with Estudio Caribe to present a new revival of Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak's Godspell, directed by Emilio Aragón. Watch an exclusive trailer for the production, beginning performances November 3 in Málaga, Spain, above.
The production follows Teatro del Soho's earlier productions of A Chorus Line and Company, both of which starred and were helmed by Artistic Director and founder Antonio Banderas, who serves as a producer for Godspell.
Originally premiering Off-Broadway in 1971 (following a 1970 student production at Carnegie Mellon University) and on Broadway in 1976, Godspell re-tells The Gospel According to St. Matthew as a series of skits and songs, with Jesus and his disciples presented as loving clowns. Schwartz's score includes such songs as "Day by Day," "Turn Back, O Man," "Save the People," and more.
In the years since its premiere, Godspell has become a mainstay of community theatres, schools, churches, and regional theatres. The work was revived Off-Broadway in 1988 and 2000, and came back to the Main Stem in 2011 in a production starring Hunter Parrish, Uzo Aduba, Telly Leung, George Salazar, Lindsay Mendez, and more.
