Great talent / great singing. Updated with cute, humorous modern references. Add extra travel time for fair traffic ! And restroom use - they are not in theater area.

There were a few good performances and songs but parts of it seemed unnecessarily silly and exaggerated. Hard not to compare the second act against Jesus Christ... continued

Description

Godspell is a refreshing yet powerful musical that is fun for the entire family. Gleaning elements from the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, this contemporary adaptation tells the story of Jesus through engaging characters, whacky story reenactments and memorable songs. Godspell is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus Christ, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.
