GODSPELL, the international hit from three-time Grammy®- and Academy®-Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, The Prince of Egypt, Pippin), returns for the 50th Anniversary tour! The charming and eclectic score has brought the story of the Gospel of Matthew to modern audiences since it first appeared in its electrifying off-Broadway production. Its music has become familiar to generations, featuring “ultracatchy genre-hopping pop songs” (Vulture) like “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” and the stand-out hit, “Day by Day.”
At turns both heart-warming and heart-breaking, GODSPELL weaves messages of acceptance and love into a story line that captivates audiences of all ages. GODSPELL fans will experience the nostalgia of a peace-seeking, innocent time, and new audiences will discover “a buoyant exuberance” where “even the dramatic numbers find a clear line to your heart and head” (The NY Post).
