The Broadway revival of "Godspell" announces more casting that includes a famous American Idol !!

Groovy Baby, Peace! Broadway travels back in time this summer and fall with the Public's revival of "Hair" in Central Park and "Godspell" returns in the fall on September 29Th at the Ethel Barrymore theatre. For you "Wicked" fans out there, Stephen Schwartz who wrote the score for Wicked also wrote this piece much earlier in his career. And what a score it is with song titles that include "Day By Day," "Save The People," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."
And for all of you American Idol fanatics, "American Idol" finalist Diana DeGarmo has joined the cast along with "In the Heights" Joshua Henry, "Rent's" Telly Leung, The Wedding Singer's David Josefsberg and more will join the previously announced Gavin Creel (Tony nominee for Thoroughly Modern Millie) for the upcoming Broadway revival of Godspell.

In an earlier statement by the shows producer Daniel Epstein, he said, "When I saw Daniel Goldstein's production of Godspell at the Paper Mill Playhouse, I was overpowered by its vibrancy and relevance. This Broadway production will take that experience to an even more glorious level. It is essential that the power of this production and how it moves people lives on at its highest potential."

I'm not sure how this show will fare in a season where there are so many new musicals opening up, but it is a classic and hopefully it will find its audience!
