Godspell musical revival at Union Theatre

The Union Theatre in Southwark is staging a revival of the musical Godspell to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary.

Godspell will run at the Union from 15th-7th May (previews from 13th April) and will be directed by Michael Strassen with Michael Bradley as the musical director.

Godspell is based on the gospel according to St Matthew and opens with John the Baptist rounding up followers and ends with Jesus being crucified in a junkyard. It was first performed in the West End in 1971 with David Essex playing Jesus.

Conceived by John-Michael Tebelak, the show has music and lyric by Stephen Schwartz whose later work includes Pippin and most recently Wicked! The score includes Day by Day and Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord.

The cast of the Union production will include Madalena Alberto (Sonia), Jill Armour (Gilmer), Daryl Armstrong (Herb), Jeremy Batt (Jeffrey), Davis Brooks (Judas), Billy Cullum (Jesus), Natalie Green (Robin), Sophie Isaacs (Joanne), Caroline Hubbard (Peggy) and Iwan Lewis (Lamar).
