Playbill and Variety are reporting that the oft-rumoured Godspell revival is aiming for a 2010-2011 season Broadway bow. The show was last making its way to Broadway (for the first time since 1977) in 2008, but that was canceled because of the ‘harsh reality of a slowing economy’. Both articles tell us that the show will be directed by Daniel Goldstein, who directed the Papermill production, that no casting has been announced and that a new producer (Ken Davenport) has picked up where Adam Epstein left off.
So what are your thoughts? Would a revival of Godspell be a
blessing? Or a curse? A good choice because, unlike some other shows, it hasn’t had a Broadway run in this decade? Or is it just something that doesn’t interest you either way?
