As I blogged on Saturday, today we opened up our “sacred room” (as Danny Goldstein called the creative incubator also known as our rehearsal studio) to members of the press for a sneak peak at what Danny and crew have been cooking up.
NBC, NY1, Broadway.com, BroadwayWorld.com, Playbill.com, TheaterMania.com, BroadwayBeat, and a whole host of other channels, sites, and still photogs were there to shoot our three chosen numbers, as well as interview Stephen Schwartz, Danny, Chris Gattelli, and our talented cast.
For our three numbers, we decided to showcase “Bless The Lord,” “All Good Gifts,” and . . . when choosing our third piece, we shook it up a bit and decided against doing one of the other tunes. Instead, Danny showed the cameras the other side of Godspell . . . and asked the cast to perform the parable of The Good Samaritan, which was a totally original piece created by this group, inspired by music by cast member Celisse Henderson.
Godspell is one of those rare and unique breeds of shows that allows the company to use its creativity and unique gifts to mold and shape it into what they want it to be. And with a group like this, you get . . . well . . . what we showed the press today, and what you will see in . . . 17 days.
