The international hit musical sensation Godspell comes to life in this exhilarating screen adaptation. An updated interpretation of the Gospel's lessons filled with unforgettable song and dance numbers, Godspell is rousing entertainment in the tradition of the classic rock operas Hair, Tommy, and Jesus Christ Superstar.
John the Baptist (David Haskell) gathers a diverse band of youthful disciples to follow and learn from the teachings of Jesus (Victor Garber, Titanic). They form a roving acting troupe that enacts the Parables through the street and landmarks of a brilliantly photographed contemporary New York City. High-spirited music, including the smash hit song "Day By Day" from Oscar-winning lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Original Song "Colors Of The Wind" and Original Score, Pocahontas, 1995) and show-stopping dance routines contribute to this superb family entertainment that's been called, "Funny and Beautiful...Incomparably Romantic." - Vincent Canby, The New York Times.
