Told almost entirely in song, Godspell presents the gospel of St. Matthew updated to New York City of the late '60s/early '70s. Godspell was also the first play performed in the "new" Center for the Arts when it was opened at Father Ryan in 2003 so it is a nice celebration for the 10 year anniversary.
