As previously speculated, the Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz's Godspell will play its final performance June 24 at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Directed by Daniel Goldstein and currently starring Corbin Bleu as Jesus, the production will have played 30 preview and 264 regular performances at the time of closing.
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."
Featuring choreography by Christopher Gatelli, Godspell also stars Wallace Smith as Judas in addition to 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.
The production was recently awarded the 2012 Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for Favorite Musical Revival.
