Get ready for a musical flashback. Not just to the 1970s, but also a couple thousand years earlier when Jesus Christ hadn’t even considered his future status as superstar.
You’ll surely fall under a GODSPELL when the 2011 Tony-nominated Best Musical Revival comes to the AT&T Performing Arts Center in an all-new production that will have you singing the show’s tunes long after you’ve left your seat.
The Biblical tale unfolds as a series of parables set to music (much of with organ accompaniment). Universal themes of friendship, loyalty and love all come to life in the hands and voices of a cast of incredible young performers.
From the simple lyrics of “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord” and “Day By Day” to the rousing “Turn Back, O Man,” GODSPELL is a vivid reminder why Stephen Schwartz has remained a powerhouse composer for decades since, including gay faves Wicked and Pippin.
Best of all, it’s a show that can bring people together. Many of us gays consider the theater to be our place of worship and we’ll find a common ground with the faithful who flock to this family-friendly show of Biblical proportions.
There won’t be an official turn-and-meet-your-neighbor segment like Sunday mornings, so save that for intermission.
If you can stop singing “Light of the World” for a few minutes.
