Jugglers keep three spheres rotating through the air. Barrages of confetti burst into the crowd. Dancers thrash, twirl, and embrace in a flurry of color. All this pizzazz works toward Godspell's singular goal: relaying the simple lessons of the Gospels, accomplished through humorous sketches and musical numbers penned by Stephen Schwartz of Wicked and Pippin fame. The showtunes range from the stripped-down and soulful 1971 hit "Day By Day" to the burlesque-inspired "Turn Back, O Man". Intimate staging—supplemented by much hand-clapping and bounding through the aisles—emphasizes the show's inclusive message while helping the audience build up their peripheral vision.
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s when disco balls replaced light fixtures. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
