As I come to the conclusion of my directorship of a production of the musical Godspell for the Plain Great Players in Abilene, Kansas, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect upon this musical and to make a case for what a unique piece of theatre it is. Godspell, is, in fact, more of an outline for a musical than an actual script in the traditional sense. Yes, the spoken word, the music, and the lyrics are laid-out for the director and cast, but so much is left ambiguous, subject to interpretation. This is where the fun and originality begin. As you rehearse the scenes, everything is left open enough that the personalities of your cast creep into their roles, and suddenly your production of Godspell has taken on a life of its own.
