The Knightsbridge Theatre is about to breathe new life into a family-friendly musical that’s been winning over audiences since 1971. “Godspell” fans will delight in this playful and raucous retelling of the gospel according to St. Matthew that employs vaudeville, story theater, and improv comedy as its media. The resurrection begins June 6.
Director Chuck McCollum has sought to maintain the mischievous innocence of the original text, while remembering that the audiences of today can be grittier and “more suspicious.” The songs of “Godspell,” which have become requisite to any musical-theater lover’s repertoire, add playfulness to what could otherwise be mistaken for preachiness. While holding true to Steven Schwartz’s original music, musical director Jan Roper’s aim is to keep the pop-rock score fresh for discerning theatergoers of all ages. Allison Bibicoff choreographs.
