im always intrequed about how people stage this.
ive seen it done three times. one was pretty neutral and sorta period. the other was modern but not forced, but casual clothes and that. the third was totally modern and very well done. i assume from the style of the music that its meant to be set more modern, but what do you think?

Yea I agree it is set to be more modern. For the show I was in I liked how we cut "Tower of Babble" and added a sort of modern day scene before "Preapre Ye'". The thing I liked about this scene is there was no dialogue or singing, it was jus basically us on stage improving like we were on some busy street in a busy city. We had a cop, a movie star, a thug, a hobo, a buisness person,etc...then we sang "Prepare Ye'" and after that changed into are "Hippie" sort of Kool colored disciple costumes. I relly liked that first scene because it sort of was one of those scenes, you know, that are very rare in modern theatre. All I have to say is I wished I had a videoclip of it to send you because its one of those "You gotta see it, to understand it" scenes.

The thing about Godspell is that it can be set whenever you want it to be set. Many productions, like mine, don't have a set time. Our costumes went from hippie-ish to modern to stuff that no one would wear out ever.

Ours was set after a worldwide apocalypse. Our costumes were modern, but tattered, and suggestive of people fighting to survive in a nuked climate. The set featured three crosses composed of industrial steel beams and torn, smoke-stained fabric hanging from the ceiling.

Well, you have to realize, Rocky, that this WAS modern when it first came out in the 70s. If my opinion means much, though, I don't think it's as important to to stay with the 70s look as it is to communicate the meaning behind the story. Just food for thought.
