It was fun to get together and attend the musical. I thought there would be more people attending but there wasn't. We made sure that we arrived by 6:30 to get a good seat. We were on the forth row front and center (great seats). It is a really small auditorium. I understand why they don't advertise much - because there isn't room for a huge crowd, which is such a shame!
I think I like the 70's version with the clown make-up and silliness in clothing compared to the regular clothing in the play last night and NO clown make up. You could tell they actors were having a ton of fun and so did I.
If you are not familiar with Godspell - this is a short synopsis:
Godspell has the structure of a series of parables, taken primarily from the Gospel of Matthew. these are then interspersed with a variety of modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional hymns. It started as a college project performed by students at Carnegie Mellon University and moved to La Mama in Greenwich village. It was then re-scored for an off-Broadway production that was a long-running success, but most people are familiar with the film version or have seen a local high school production of the musical.
This is from the program - the Directors Note:
I thought I would add a couple of songs from the musical off of You Tube:
