Godspell is the greatest story ever told as you've never seen it before. In this updated version of the beloved classic -- recently a hit Broadway revival -- Grammy and Oscar-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Pippin) has revised his rousing and eclectic sore, which features everything from ragtime to rap. As conceived by Lyric Arts resident director Robert Neu, this Vaudeville-inspired production is a hilarious yet meaningful reimagining of the Gospel of Matthew that brings the story of Christ to a whole new generation in a fun and accessible way.

The four person series of vignettes concerning love and life was very enjoyable. The misunderstandings of love between men and women were funny, thought-provoking, heart-warming and just plain laugh out loud funny. I would recommend this play to anyone interested in a great night out.

Love is in the air and as palpable as one’s breath on a cold, clear moonless night in Almost, Maine. That love winds its way through several vignettes cloaked sometimes in the breathtaking, whimsical, humorous and even heartbreaking experiences it evokes. Just as the residents of this remote, mythical town discover, the path to love is winding and unpredictable but is almost always worth the journey.
