“We can build a beautiful city…” Using a wide variety of storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing, a diverse group of citizens perform parables from the Book of Matthew and inspiring and entertaining songs ranging from pop to vaudeville. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Godspell spreads messages of empathy, compassion, and love.
