Godspell returns to Broadway in this modern revival – Discount Code & Ticket Giveaway

Long before Wicked was on broadway there was Godspell by Stephen Schwartz.  Its a very interesting take on a what I would have imagined being a very slow and drama filled play… it was rather up beat and popcorn-y.  I will say being not so religious myself this was a little much for me in that area but it still held my attention and I could totally see many people really enjoying this show.

There was a large interweave of comedy which really helped keep me interested in the show. It also helped that Jesus is played by Hunter Parrish, from TV’s “Weeds” (one of my favorite shows on TV) creates a group of followers out of disaffected, isolated youths gabbing on their cellphones. Pokes at Facebook, “Purple Rain,” Lindsay Lohan, childhood obesity, death of Khadafy, and Donald Trump kept me chuckling between the little bit of heavy parts.

I think this would be great for any teenager who wants a relevant connection to the content, this certainly isnt the play I’m taking anyone under the age of ten too. They really wont get the subject matter and will be ready to bolt the moment the first few scenes/acts are over.

This would be a good date night show since its located right off the northern end of times square. Just make sure you’re both cool with the religious aspects.  The great thing about the theatre is there isnt a bad seat since its done as theatre in the round.

Date Night Giveaway: SOFIA REI KOUTSOVITIS at Joe’s Pub

SOFIA REI KOUTSOVITIS

Saturday, June 19 at 7:00 PM

As the Argentine singer Sofia Rei Koutsovitis led her multinational band… the passion and clarity with which she assayed a tricky mix of South American rhythms and jazz-inflected harmonies made clear why she has been embraced by New York City audiences from Carnegie Hall to the hippest downtown haunts.” – Phil Lutz, New York Times

“…one of the most versatile and in-demand singers on the New York music scene.” – Simon Calle,  All About Jazz

“…a potent combination that’s like nothing else around” – Kevin Convey, Boston Herald


Sofia Rei Koutsovitis is one of New York’s most passionate, charismatic and inventive vocalists, who brings depth and fullness of a riveting voice to her second album, “Sube Azul” (World Village/Harmonia Mundi). She also serves as the album’s composer, arranger, lyricist and — with bassist Jorge Roeder — producer. Following up on “Ojalá,” her polyglot and multilingual debut, she offers this time a collection of mostly original Spanish-language songs, building on a new set of growth experiences since moving to New York in 2005.

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, the album is grounded in traditional South American rhythms such as chacarera, zamba and vidala from Argentina, Afro-peruvian festejo and lando, Afro-Uruguayan candombe, Colombian cumbia and bullerengue and other genres that merge involving jazz harmonies, electronic sounds and rich improvisations. Singing in Spanish, Portuguese or English, Sofia’s voice is graceful as well as sophisticated, tying together diverse influences in a program full of rhythmic complexity, melody and romance.

Sofia is a restless artist, one of the most versatile and in-demand singers on the New York music scene. She has recorded, performed and collaborated with renowned musicians and groups such as Maria Schneider, John Zorn, Bobby McFerrin, Folklore Urbano, John Scofield, Lionel Loueke, Pavel Urkiza (Gema y Pavel), Russ Ferrante (Yellow Jackets), Bob Moses, Aquiles Baez, Samuel Torres Group,  Pedrito Martinez, and Avantango. She is also the vocalist of Geoffrey Keezer’s “Aurea,” whose self-titled 2009 release received a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album.  $15 in advance [Link] / $20 at the door
