Godspell opens tonight, and I just have to say . . .
. . . thank you.
There’s a lot of people that will be joining me at Circle in the Square tonight who helped make the first ever revival of Godspell happen. There is Stephen Schwartz, and Danny Goldstein, and the designers, and the so-talented-they-make-me-want-to-throw-up cast, and the crew, and General Managers, the investors and co-Producers, and all the other people I mentioned over the summer on the Godspell Blog.
But I’ll get a chance to thank all those guys in person.
I wanted to take today’s blog to thank all of you . . . the people that read, the people that comment, the people that agree with me and the people that don’t . . . because whether you like it or not, you helped raise tonight’s figurative curtain with me. Your passion for the theater and for trying new things has helped fuel mine. And I only wish there was place on the staff page of the program for all of you. (I have no doubt that so many of you will be on your own staff pages and above titles before you can say “recoupment” anyway.)
So thank you.
Oh, and by the way, I don’t know what it is . . . but there’s something special happening over at Circle in the Square . . . not only on that stage . . . but off as well.
Maybe it’s the energy from The People Of Godspell, or the incredible number of young people I’m noticing in the audience, or the number of Broadway debuts in our cast, or some of our marketing initiatives, or the number of new producing partners I have . . . but whatever it is, it doesn’t feel like your typical Broadway show . . . and definitely not your typical revival. It feels like . . . a beginning.
Now, I gotta go pace around my office and drive my staff crazy.
