Godspell began its Broadway run on Oct. 13, 2011 and officially opened on Nov. 7, 2011 after a prior production had failed to raise enough funds to open on Broadway. This production opened investment to theater lovers and "regular" folks with contributions as small as $1,000. At the time of its closing, the productions, directed by Daniel Goldstein, with out-of-the-box choreography by Christopher Gattelli, will have played 30 preview performances and 264 regular performances.
Godspell will launch its first national tour in the 2013-2014 theater season.
If you already saw this revival, or if you were thinking you might want to see it, catch Corbin Bleu as Jesus if you can before the show closes. I recently revisited Godspell when he took over the role following the departure of Hunter Parrish and was impressed with his interpretation of Jesus as a caring, teacher of authority. You can read my original review of the show by clicking here.
Shout out to producer Ken Davenport who does his best to keep God on the stage in New York (another of his shows was the popular Off-Broadway Altar Boyz). What can we be praying about for you next, Ken?
