SHOW NOTES

Tweet us your ideas!

Stephen Schwartz’s service to his fans is fantastic. Check out the forums on his website to see some of his interaction. The Godspell stuff is particularly interesting!

Godspell is yet another ‘70s-New-York-Centric-Movie-Musical, have a look at a young Victor Garber leading the flock with some fascinating choreography to ‘All For The Best.’

In complete contrast, have a look at the trailer for the 2011 Broadway revival of Godspell complete with onstage water and trampolines!

We want to hear about your thoughts on the religious side of Godspell, particularly if you’re not of the Christian faith – but Christians don’t worry, we want to hear from you too! Come say hi on Reddit!
