Based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew, Godspell remains one of the most popular rock musicals of all time. Created by John-Michael Tebelak as a college project in 1970, messages of love, generosity, joy, and faith are presented in song, dance, and all forms of theatrical play. Rescored by Stephen Schwartz (creator of Wicked) before moving to off-Broadway in 1971. After becoming one of the longest-running off-Broadway musicals, it moved to Broadway in 1976, presenting more than 2,600 performances before ending its run in September 1977. “Day By Day,” from the original cast album, reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in the summer of 1972.
