Stop with the personal insults! By the way, Todd was only eight years old when this movie was released so I seriously doubt he had a date at that time.I, of course, have not yet received my pre-ordered copy of Godspell yet, but I can only hope that your assessment of it's video and audio is as incredibly WRONG as your thoughts on the Production. I have rarely read a review of a movie that had as many comments that were just flat-out untrue, and I can only surmise that you have some kind of deep-seeded resentment against the movie (perhaps you went to see it in the theater with a date who rejected your advancements during the "Day by Day" number).
I loved this film almost as much as the original play, which I saw at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, and again when it transferred to the Ivar Theater in Hollywood with much of the original cast. Years later the production was remounted, again with most of the original cast at a Methodist church in Hollywood (I think). At the Taper the cast served wine from a jug at intermission.
i am most certainly buying this, we had to sing these songs at every mass in catholic school in the late '70's.
also so sad that the majority of this cast has passed away
I auditioned for the Taper production. Came close, didn't get it. But the casting director loved me and I got a play there just a short time later - doing the play there was one of the happiest experiences of my entire life. What a great theater. Here is the cast of the Taper production, a couple of whom are in the film version: Herb Braha, Bob Garrett, Peggy Gordon, David Haskell, Jeanne Lange-Haskell, Patti Mariano, Gilmer McCormick, Jeffrey Mylett, Stephen Nathan, Marley Sims.
Bob is still a friend I see fairly often, and Stephen was, of course, the original Jesus and four years after this went on to star in a little motion picture entertainment called The First Nudie Musical
I am very glad to hear this. It is still my favorite theater to attend. Many memories. I was saddened by the passing of David Haskell years ago. He was a fine actor. I wonder what part you auditioned for. I had to show my ID at intermission for the wine by the way, on the stage with the stage lights on (probably at half?)
