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. ...  [ read more ]
