The Stephen Schwartz-composed musical Godspell opened off-Broadway in 1971 and has been playing in touring companies and revivals ever since, including a 2011 revival that played on Broadway for nearly a year. (This was such a big part of my teenage Catholic upbringing that I had to choose it for “G.”)
The musical is a series of parables, primarily based on the Gospel of Matthew. These parables, or allegories, are set to modern music. Godspell originally started as a college project performed by students at Carnegie Mellon University and eventually moved to a club in Greenwich Village.
Here is a montage of some of the performances, from the 2011 revival.
