Review - Godspell: In The Vernacular
by Ben Peltz - Nov 15, 2011

Just like Pope Paul VI figured when The Vatican told followers to go ahead and celebrate mass in the vernacular, John-Michael Tebelak figured that if the musical he penned with Stephen Schwartz, based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, was going to connect with young people, it had to be done in their language.  So when Godspell premiered Off-Broadway forty years ago, the son of God and his disciples were depicted as soft pop and folk singing flower children who were too busy learning how to spread love to be bothered with sex, drugs and burning their draft cards.  Arriving on Broadway after Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar, it was the first major rock musical that didn't scare the hell out of parents.

Gregory Malouf's Silent: The Power of Silence Aims to Help 'Life Reboots'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2012

All too many of us create an outer persona or "ego self" in order to cope with the fear and anxiety of day to day life. This false identity normalizes these intense emotions, stops us from feeling anything at all, and drives us toward artificial goals of financial status and success. No one understands this better than Gregory Nicholas Malouf, a successful businessman and entrepreneur who became a workaholic at 19, earning triple figures each week, and throwing lavish parties and traveling around the world. He thought he was living the 'perfect life' until at age 50, his world collapsed and he realized he was living a lie. (more...)
