There was a thread about Godspell on these forums last year–I hope this link to the thread works:
My husband and I love *Godspell *and have seen dozens of different productions of it. Some were produced by Christians (churches or schools), other by non-Christians in secular theaters. Some were professional, some were rank amateur. Some were set in a city, in a circus, or in the streets. My favorite production of Godspell was done at a summer youth drama camp, and had two hundred children and teenagers in the cast–yes, the director did it very well.
Some productions showed a very obvious resurrection of the Lord Jesus, while others did not show it. It doesn’t matter–the resurrection is obvious from the music. But it is so nice when a director chooses to show a literal resurrection of Jesus!
*Godspell *i s word for word from the book of Matthew, so I’m not quite sure I understand the OP comment about the Gospels.
And many of the songs from Godspell are adaptations of ancient religious poetry, or taken from the Bible.
I believe that the depiction of the Last Supper in Godspell was one of the many things that God used to bring me to Catholicism. The Godspell version of the Communion depicts how much Jesus really loves us.
Hope the link works. If not, try a search and you should be able to find the thread.
