Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell, which first opened off Broadway in 1971, is the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz, who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked and Pippin. The show features a comedic troupe of eccentric players who team up with Jesus to teach his lessons in a new age through parables, games, and tomfoolery. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
