Benson Theatre (bensontheatre.org) is excited to present Godspell, a musical by Stephen Schwartz, on their stage from February 10 to February 26. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday shows are at 2 p.m. Tickets start at $35 with reserved seating.
At the behest of John the Baptist, Godspell follows young men and women forsaking their jobs and taking up the mantle of Jesus Christ, becoming his disciples, in a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew set in modern-day New York City. Using song and dance, the apostles traverse the city, spreading Christ’s message of love and tolerance as the time moves ever closer to his betrayal at the hands of Judas and, ultimately, his crucifixion.
