An announcement about my next project.
Last Friday I announced the end of a five year run one of my shows.
So this Friday I thought it only fitting to announce my next show.
As written about in today’s Variety, I am prepping to mount the first ever Broadway revival of Godspell.
Why would I want to produce Godspell?
Why would I NOT want to produce Godspell?
G’Spell is one of the most beloved musicals on the planet, by one of the most “popular” musical theater composers on the planet, and is the type of unique theatrical experience that audiences crave, and then talk about.
Oh, and, my Mom tells me that it was during a production of the Stephen Schwartz/John-Michael Tebelak musical that I first “kicked.” I mean, if that wasn’t a sign that I was meant for a career in the theater, I don’t know what was.
And the last reason I wanted to produce this show, and produce it now?
Well, with Altar Boyz closing (only 37 shows left !), I didn’t want to fall out of favor with the Big Guy upstairs. I figured this could score me a few extra points.
Keep your eye on the blog for future Godspell updates.
