By on November 1, 2011

Godspell fans get ready to mark your calendars as the cast of Godspell will be heading to late night television when they perform live on Late Night with David Letterman on November 1.  The Broadway revival cast comprised of the Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Hunter Parish, Telly Leung and more will showcase their skills on stage.

The revival of this show on Broadway marks the musical’s 40th anniversary.  Godspell is a fun, modern day retelling of the New Testament parables from the Gospel According to Matthew.  These are then interspersed with a variety of modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional hymns with the passion of the Christ treated briefly near the end of the performance.  It originally started as a college project performed by students at Carnegie Mellon University.  It was then re-scored for an off-Broadway production which became a long-running success.  Regular performances of the show will begin on November 15th at Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theatre.

You can check out a sneak peek of what to expect to see on the late night show below.  What do you think of the revival of Godspell heading to David Letterman, will you be checking it out?
