Post GODSPELL Revival Photos
BroadwayWorld has a first look at Godspell.

By and large, the cast is a very attractive bunch. But the photos on the whole don't really excite me. What's missing? Where's the magic? For the sake of the production, I hope it's just mediocre photography...

I'd just like to point out that the HOT Morgan James is barely in any of the photos and when she is, she's hardly recognizable. Her costume is completely stupid and totally wrong for her. She should be the best thing about this, but it doesn't look like they know that.

Did you miss the note at the end of the article stating that '[d]ue to an ankle injury, understudy Julia Mattison appears in photos in the role normally played by Morgan James who is expected back shortly'?

Oh, wow, I feel stupid. But still, that costume is awful. Is she really gonna sing "Turn Back, O Man" in that dumb hat and everything?

I guess so. Maybe someone who goes to watch can let us know? Now that the number has been mentioned - I wonder if this production will get "Turn Back, O Man" to make sense and whether that costume is a part of that. There are so many things going on in that song and I've never seen a production get it quite right. It never quite all adds up, but I am not sure whether it can.

Capathia Jenkins got it completely right IMO. And I assume Morgan will put on a costume over her costume. After all, the concept is that they're an abandoned theatre with props and costumes lying around.

Is that the explanation they're using now? *skeptical smile*

One of the presidents of a local theatre group here is a financial backer for the show, so I've been getting bits of information from her via Facebook. Would love to get to see the show!

Buff :D

My post wasn't about various actresses' performances of the song. I've seen and heard marvelous renditions of the song. What I haven't seen is a production get all of the conflicting semiotics that this song introduces into the show balanced properly.
