The first Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz’s Godspell may end its run on June 24 at the Circle in the Square Theatre, according to lead producer Ken Davenport's blog. Directed by Daniel Goldstein and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, Godspell opened on November 7, 2011. The show is set to perform a medley of "Day by Day" and "Light of the World" on the June 10 Tony Awards telecast.
"Godspell, despite its fantastic response from audience members who see the show, has been struggling as of late," Davenport wrote. "Godspell has a heck of a lot riding on that Tony performance, as well as tourist traffic over the next couple of weeks."
After a successful five year run at off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre beginning in 1971, Godspell originally transferred to Broadway on June 22, 1976. The show later closed at the Ambassador Theatre after 527 performances. The musical features classic songs including "Day By Day," "By My Side" and "All For the Best."
Godspell currently stars Corbin Bleu as Jesus, Wallace Smith as Judas and Uzo Aduba, Nick Blaemire, Celisse Henderson, Morgan James, Telly Leung, George Salazar, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle and Hannah Elless. Hunter Parrish played Jesus when the show opened last year.
