    I saw the very first performance of Godspell when it was John-Michael Tebelak’s Masters project in the studio blackbox at Carnegie-Mellon. Everyone knew it was special. There was already buzz about its going to New York. I don’t think any of us could have imagined the life it would have. John-Michael was my highschool librarian’s brother.
