Why you love Godspell:

Well, I think the past 40 years have proven that Stephen Schwartz wrote some incredible music when he put the pen to the pad for GODSPELL. And that's reason enough to love this musical, but also the show thrives on individuality. It brings people of all walks of life together with a message that anyone can live by. I mean, isn't that why YOU love GODSPELL?
