“Godspell” is at The Media Theatre August 4 – 27, with a youthful cast, a live band, and a new vision for the classic musical. The musical was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm.

Led by the international hit, “Day By Day”, which hit the pop charts in the early 1970’s after the show’s premiere on Broadway, and has been recorded by everyone from Judy Collins to dc Talk, the musical focuses on a small group of people who assist Jesus as he tells the parables from the Book of Matthew using a wide variety of story techniques, and plenty of comedy. It all dissolves hauntingly into The Last Supper and the Crucifixion, while Jesus messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
“Godspell” features chart topping songs, a book by John Michael Tebelak, and also became a feature film in 1973. Never out of ‘style’ and always relevant, “Godspell” continues to touch audiences.
“Godspell” is on stage at The Media Theatre August 4 through 27, with performances on Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 7pm, and Sundays at 3pm. For tickets, call 610-891-0100 or visit mediatheatre.org
