As an NYC girl I am all about Broadway, off, on, and off-off Broadway. While I love a good movie there's something about live theatre that wins me over every time. I was invited to check out a new show taking over Broadway in a shocking way, Godspell.
In a fun and colorful display, the teachings of Christ are broken down through uplifting song, hilarious dialogues, and high energy dancing, I seriously don't get how they do these shows back to back. Any show that includes clean up as a part of the act without taking away from the actual show, is phenomenal in my book! While the play didn't go the exact way I thought it would, Jesus and his "inquiring minds" flowed through all the major points that Jesus taught without being preachy or convicting and even included some punch lines from modern day headlines (Occupy Wall Street and Kadafi's death). The cast was captivating and warm, from pulling audience members up on stage to play out Pictionary to serving juice shots at intermission everyone became friends by the end of the night, and the voices, OH MY GOD the Voices! From the Beatitudes (taking it back to Sunday School) up until the Crucifixion, we were given a crash course on how the greatest mind taught us to live-TO LOVE GOD AND ONE ANOTHER!
Standing ovations filled the room when the cast members came back for their final bows and there weren't many dry eyes in the room once they carried the body of Christ out singing Beautiful City, a song with the most beautiful message of unity and progress. From Sunday Schools to families with young children, to theatre lovers young and old, atheist and Christian, Godspell is one for the books! The message is clear, the acting phenomenal, the music impacting, and the dancing will move you-truly a good reason to head down to Broadway.
Tickets normally run for $125 but the great group promoting is offering my readers a GREAT discount! Using the code, GSPRD719 you can see Godspell for just $79.50!! This is a steal for Broadway! Enter here for your chance to see a great show on Broadway with money left over for dinner after.
