The return of Godspell in Manila, a theater review.
Who would have thought that this master 's thesis project based on the Gospel Of Matthew by the American playwright John-Michael Tebelak will become such a hit and critically acclaimed? Godspell opened as an Off-Broadway show in May 17, 1971 which later opened in Broadway's Broadhurst Theater in 1976 and since then has been performed and revived multiple times in many countries. From stage play to screen play, two years after its Broadway debut, the musical was then adopted into film in 1973.
Godspell returns happens last May 6-7, 12-14 & 19-21 at the RCBC Plaza.
