“Godspell” is a modern and sometimes comedic retelling of the Biblical parables and the last seven days of Christ’s life. It is a joyous, contemporary version of the Gospel according to St. Matthew in music, mime and dance that spreads the message of love and tolerance in sometimes funny and sometimes sentimental ways.
