A semi-staged concert version of Godspell will play at Cadogan Hall this month.

It will star a number of West End stars including Laura Baldwin (Waitress), Luke Bayer (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Max Bowden (Eastenders), Rachel John (Hamilton) and Ramin Karimloo (Phantom, Les Misérables, Holby City).
They’ll be joined by students from the British Theatre Academy.

The production will be directed by Dean Johnson with musical direction from Chris Ma musical and choreography from Thea Butler.
Composed by Stephen Schwartz with a book by John-Michael Tebelak, Godspell tells the story of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Matthew. With songs including ‘Day By Day’, ‘Prepare Ye’, ‘Turn Back O Man’ and ‘Beautiful City’, the show follows a community of disciples as they learn the concepts of compassion, trust, love and tolerance.
