    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, consider coming to Cincinnati sometime soon!!!!!!!!!! Have grown up with Godspell’s music and fell in love with the movie when I was very young. Share this love with my older brother (13 years my senior) and only fell in love with it, due to the support my parents had for musicals!!!!!!!!! Used All Good Gifts in my wedding for the Mom’s lighting of the candle! If I could swing it, I would be there to watch it, but traveling is difficult with three children, two of which are under 5. When you “take it on the road” please consider Cincinnati!!!!!!!!!!!

    in another version that is modernized is Jesus Christ is now placed with a new persona as a doctor working at a hospital emergency room and the disciples are now orderlies, assistants, nurses, other doctors, and patients. John the baptist/Judas is now modernized as Dr.J.C’s friend and his supervisor at this clinic. the crucifixion is now placed with Jesus being taken by some sinister looking people wearing masks and uniforms.Judas betrays Jesus to some specialists to do surgery on him and he is near death and connected to life support later he dies and is sent to the morgue for burial . however sometime after he is alive again with no scars or injuries on him no sign of death or even sickness he was alive and he became the greatest physician in the history of humanity and becomes royalty as king of kings and lord of lords he is also now ruling the universe with his father god almighty.
