Why Godspell, Why Now? Washington gives me a reminder.

I got an email from a reader who had already bought tickets to Godspell who told me she couldn’t wait to see it again.  She talked about the score, the joy, and more.

The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Hair on Broadway!

So if you’ve got a craving to experience The Tribe all over again, or if you missed it the first time, now’s your chance, because …
