A single, miraculous stream of rain pours from above. Barrages of confetti burst into the crowd. Trampolines open up under the feet of exuberant singers. Amid these astonishing effects, High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu and Telly Leung of Glee and Wicked fame lead a 10-person cast in the Broadway revival of Godspell, the 1971 hit that propelled songs such as “Day by Day” into the pop canon. The fresh-faced, quirkily costumed triple-threats have been making the late-night rounds to enthuse about the production—a chorus joined by the Wall Street Journal’s Terry Teachout, who called it “a joyously noisy romp that goes off like an extra-long string of firecrackers” and “deserves to run … well, forever.”
All this pizzazz works toward a singular goal: relaying the simple lessons of the Gospels, accomplished through humorous sketches and musical numbers that range from the stripped-down and soulful to the burlesque-inspired. An in-the-round 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.
