I am actually doing this show right now. It is strictly an ensemble piece, no leads. There are a variety of composers in order to reflect the different styles of the professions. There are many opportunities in this show, which is great. There are a few great female solos, as well as mens. There are many straight acting parts as well. The only trouble with it is that some of the music sounds a little dated, but that can be worked around. I actually haven't heard the new recording. You can get it at LATW.org. In this new LA theatre works production the lyrics have been updated as well as a new song added, one cut, and newer/updated characters. The video put out by Public Television was directed by Stephen Schwartz, and is quite blah. The show can be done much better than that. The show has potential if it is done right. Luckily my director has a great vision for the show. We are trying to break away from the molds for the show. It says at the beginning of the script that the parts are to be done like normal people, not too musical theater like. I disagree with this because that can be blah. I think the show should be reaching as far as possible with still holding on to that bar of truth. It should be interesting, not put you to sleep. This show is more like Stephen Schwartz stuff before Wicked. Lots of the Godspell cast members were recycled. I personally don't care for most of the people's voices, but I think I can be done well. Good Luck!

why try to fit in when you are born to stand out?
