Godspell started as a college project performed by students at Carnegie Mellon University and moved to La MaMa Theatre Club in Greenwich Village. It was then re-scored for an off-Broadway production which became a long-running success.

The two-act musical features various musical styles, including rock ‘n roll, pop, R&B, ragtime, rap and more. The eccentrically dressed cast often gathers around Jesus as he tells different stories and sings about his teachings and the importance of love. The cast occasionally plays their own instruments and uses props to further enhance their storytelling. The cast frequently enters the audience and improvs, which adds to the spontaneous and involving atmosphere. Godspell can teach many powerful lessons.
