MTG's 'Godspell' is a can't-miss
Placeholder Image
"Godspell" is a "must do" before Easter! This 1970 musical is energized with a cast of 10 talented actors who are all on stage 90 percent of the time. With all the action, you wonder when these actors manage to catch their breath.

The structure of the musical play is that of a series of parables based on the Gospel of Matthew. Using modern music geared with lyrics of traditional hymns, the passion of Christ is clearly transpired at the end of the performance. The cast members certainly perform their roles well. There may be times the message of a parable is so well conveyed your eyes will begin to swell. One of my spirited guests commented after the play "I believe it was my finger that got pinched in the seat." However, you will also find yourself in laughter of joy during most of this musical, with comedy sprinkled throughout.

Godspell, a popular musical play performed worldly thousands of times since the '70s is conveniently available to enjoy right here in Monroe this week by the Monroe Theatre Guild.

Don't miss it!
