Burke Presbyterian Church, 5690 Oak Leather Dr, Burke, VA
A musical / rock opera based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, dealing with the last days of Jesus Christ. Originally performed
Off-Broadway in 1971, this version is based on the 2011 Broadway revival. Music and lyrics are by the phenomenal Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden, Pocahontas, and many others).
Godspell consists of "shows within a show" featuring several well-known parables, and many of its songs have gone on to become mainstays of American pop culture (Day by Day, Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord, Save the People, Light of the World, We Beseech Thee, to name only some!).
Over the years, it's been considered by innumerable fans and critics alike as a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man.
