Various Cuts from the recent "Tell Me On A Sunday" by Andrew Lloyd Webber, featuring Shelby Floyd.
A mega-hit on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and around the world, GODSPELL was radiantly revisited and revived in 2012 by its composer, Stephen Schwartz. Called a "joyous romp", this all-age appropriate musical is based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew and features a sparkling score that boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, "Day By Day."
The parables of Jesus come to life drawing from various theatrical traditions such as: clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville. GODSPELL is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance, love and community.
