Grammy- and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwarz’s first major musical, Godspell retells parables from the Gospels for contemporary times in a fresh, reverent style with games, stories, and a hefty dose of comedy. Tuneful, eclectic songs, including hits like “Day by Day” and “Beautiful City” enhance the musical’s message of kindness, tolerance and love.
