Godspell on Broadway Background

Godspell embraces the 21st century in this exciting new production of one of the longest-running Off-Broadway musicals of all time. This new production marks the first Broadway revival of the seminal American musical since its acclaimed run ended thirty years ago. With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, The Magic Show) and book by John-Michael Tebelak, Godspell will reunite the creative team of the critically-acclaimed 2006 Paper Mill Playhouse conception in a completely new production, marking the Broadway debut of director Daniel Goldstein.

What’s Godspell Like?

The score includes many beautiful songs by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), such as "Day By Day," "Save The People," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All Good Gifts,", "By My Side." and choreography by Christopher Gattelli.

Is Godspell Good for Kids?
