News   PHOTO CALL: Broadway's Godspell in the Recording Studio
Cast members from the current Broadway revival of Godspell, featuring Hunter Parrish, Lindsay Mendez, Telly Leung and Wallace Smith, headed into the recording studio Nov. 14 to lay down vocals for the show's upcoming cast album.

Kurt Deutsch and composer-lyricist Stephen Schwartz are producing the album. An early January 2012 in-store release date is the goal, though the disc will likely be available at the Circle in the Square Theatre before then.


Here is the cast in studio:


Daniel Goldstein directs the first-ever Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz's pop-rock take on the Gospel of Matthew, which was originally conceived and directed by book writer John-Michael Tebelak. Godspell opened Nov. 7 after previews that began Oct. 13.

Standouts in the Tony-nominated score include "Day By Day," "All Good Gifts," "Save the People," "O Bless the Lord," and "Beautiful City." The revival reflects updated orchestrations and vocal arrangements by Michael Holland. Musical director is Charlie Alterman.

The 2011 revival cast features Parrish (Spring Awakening, "Weeds") as Jesus, Smith (American Idiot) as Judas, as well as Mendez (Everyday Rapture, Grease), Leung (Rent, "Glee"), Uzo Aduba (Coram Boy), Nick Blaemire (Cry-Baby), Celisse Henderson ("The Electric Company," In Transit), Morgan James (Wonderland, The Addams Family), Anna Maria Perez de Tagle ("Hannah Montana," "Fame") and George Salazar (Spring Awakening national tour).
