Godspell is the playground of musical theater. Actors, directors, and other interpretive artists love it because of the freedom it allows them in terms of production style, musical approach, and comic ad-libbing. Of course, such license can lead to an unwatchable show in the wrong hands. Fortunately, the new Paper Mill Playhouse staging, by Daniel Goldstein is among the best of the best I've ever seen of the beloved Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak musical.
