The Godspell Update: We Built a Beautiful City

Hello Godspell fans.

I just left the Circle in the Square Theatre moments ago, where with a very heavy heart I told the cast and crew that Godspell will play its final performance on Sunday, June 24th.  

While we certainly had hoped our show would run for years and years, we’re all very proud of the beautiful city we built.  

Over the last nine months, our sensational cast has spread the joy of Godspell to over 153,000 people (and blasted them with over 1,000 pounds of confetti).  And while this production of Godspell may not be at Circle in the Square past the 24th of June, it will be in our hearts and the hearts of everyone who saw it forever.

There are 15 more chances for you to celebrate the joy of Godspell with our incredible cast.  And because you’ve followed this story from the beginning, I’m making some great seats available to you for as low as $50.

Click here to get your tickets!  And make sure you look for me when you come!  

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.  It has changed my life.

    Ken,

    I had the privilege of seeing this show through my school here in New York, and I always have a special place in my heart for “Godspell.” This really did it for me, too. I laughed, I cried, I remembered why I loved this show so much. I was blown away by the cast. It really was a stellar show.

    I hope you’re proud of your show because it was such a delight. I hope, money willing, I’ll get to see the show one more time before we say goodbye to this gem :)

    Chris

    I am so sorry to hear that Godspell is closing. I took my 12 year old son, who sings and knows many of the songs from Godspell, to see the show this past winter (I think it was the coldest day of the year, but we stood outside to get his playbill signed). We loved this show!!! The energy, the dancing, the cast, the songs. We were moved to laughter and tears. Why a good show doesn’t get the press or the awards it deserves is hard to put your finger on. It’s politics, I suppose. You did a really great thing, in a brave and innovative way (I read the Times piece on how you financed Godspell). Give us more brilliant theatre. Keep the faith!

    Ken,
    Once again, sorry to hear about closing “Godspell.” I know this is never allowed on Broadway Productions – but – maybe, just maybe, this time a DVD could be made available for the General Public to purchase. I’d certainly pay for a DVD to keep the memory of this Great Production! Maybe Stephen Schwartz & Music Theatre International could grant permission to release the video taken last March to sell to the general public. My wife & I were at one of the performances that was recorded for the archives. We went to see other shows on Broadway last March, including the Tony Award winning “Once” & “Newsies,” yet, we still got GREATER ENJOYMENT from the extraordinary performances & excitement of “Godspell.” I’d hate to see you loose anymore money on this show; yet, I wonder if selling a video could turn a slight profit. Over the years, so many great performances on Broadway have been exclusively seen by just a few because of keeping videos from the General Public. Only through an occasional PBS broadcast, the Tony awards, & the old Ed Sullivan Show has most of the general public has ever witnessed these great performances of the past. “Godspell” is a great performance that the public needs to see. If you ever decide to release a video of your great production, let us know.
    Thanks again for a Fantastic Show!

      I have just opened a small phahogropty business here in Richmond Va, and am wondering about choosing someone to do my Search Engine Optimization in Richmond. First off, does anyone by chance know of a solid search engine optimization company in Richmond VA? I’m looking for results but also not to break bank!I did a google search on search engine optimization in richmond va or something like that, but from there I’m not sure how to tell one company over another. Any tips greatly appreciated!
