BWW Reviews: GODSPELL Will Bring Joy to Your Life

It is time to go support our local theater, organize a big group and go see the Actor’s Playhouse Theater performance of Godspell!

It is a show for the entire family and most importantly for all those looking for a brilliant theater production. The rendition of our local theater company is superb, well executed and as good as any big city production.

This timeless story of friendship, loyalty, and love with musical parables based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew, features a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of Wicked and Pippin. One of the most enduring shows of all time, Godspell has touched the hearts of countless theatergoers all over the world and is currently running on Broadway. Full of energy and excitement and filled with popular hits such as Day by Day, Learn Your Lesson’s Well and Turn Back, O Man, Godspell will be a musical experience for the entire family.

Godspell originally ran for more than 2,600 performances in New York and spawned successful touring productions in major U.S. cities, a 1973 motion picture adaptation and countless international engagements for the past 40 years. One of the most enduring shows of all time, Godspell has touched the hearts of countless theatergoers all over the world and just finished its first-ever Broadway revival in June 2012.

Conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Academy and Grammy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), Godspell's Tony-nominated score features instantly recognizable hits including Day by Day, Turn Back, O Man, Learn Your Lessons Well, Prepare Ye the Way, Light of the World and many more.

"Actors' Playhouse brings a fresh and contemporary feel to the production in both its design approach and by allowing the actors to bring their own personalities to the characters," said Artistic Director David Arisco. "We have assembled a stellar cast who bring this upbeat and powerful musical to life for a new generation of theatergoers."

The cast of Godspell includes Josh Canfield, Clay Cartland, Henry Gainza, Jeni Hacker, Shea Hess, Nick Duckart, Heather Kopp, Kareema Khouri, Cindy Pearce and Don Seward. Directed by David Arisco, with musical staging and choreography by Barbara Flatten and musical direction by David Nagy, the creative team for Godspell also includes set design by Gene Seyffer, costume design by Ellis Tillman, lighting design by Patrick Tennent and sound design by Alexander Herrin.

If you are a fan of Godspell you’ll be singing throughout the show. If you are new to the show, this is a great opportunity to begin your experience in the musical theater. It is fun, the talent is extraordinary and the lessons to be learned are made just incredibly enjoyable through the brilliant voices of our very own Miami Playhouse Theater. Do not miss this beautiful production!
