This reader knew all the reasons why she was so excited to see the show coming back (one of which was that it was the first show she ever saw, and now she was excited to bring her kids so it could be their "first" too) . . . but she was curious as to some of my motivations for bringing back the show as well.
I of course repeated all the same things she did . . . the incredible score, the fun, the fact that it hasn't ever been revived, etc.
But I also told her about a more timely reason why I thought this show needed to be seen in 2011. Yes, it's fun, yes it's joy-filled, but there's something underneath that's worth talking about. I wrote about it on yesterday's Godspell blog, but I wanted to make sure you all saw it here as well.
Check it out here.
