Godspell Sets Dates for Revival
A highly anticipated revival of Stephen Schwartz's Godspell has set production dates. The show will play the Circle in the Square Theatre with previews beginning on October 13th and an opening night set for November 7th. The production will be directed by Daniel Goldstein. A revival of the show was slated to open on Broadway in 2008 starring Diana DiGarmo and Gavin Creel, also to be directed by Goldstein. The show will reunite the creative team from a 2006 Paper Mill Play House production directed by Goldstein, including choreographer Christopher Gattelli, set designer David Korins, costume designer Miranda Hoffman, lighting designer Ben Stanton and sound designer Mike Farfalla. As an interesting side note, upstairs from the revival of Godspell, another Stephen Schwartz musical, Wicked, is playing at the Gershwin Theater.
