Daniel C. Levine Nails It! GODSPELL is Reimagined, Original Allure Retained

A Review by HamletHub

It takes an ingenious artist and visionary to take a timeless classic musical production and reinvent it for modern times while retaining all that was great about the original Broadway performance. 


Enter Daniel C. Levine.

Levine’s brilliant choice of an abandoned church as the setting served as a mesmerizing and thought-provoking backdrop for the modernized interpretation of Stephen Schwartz’s GODSPELL.

Keeping the Faith

A review by Donald Brown, Connecticut Critics Circle

The show opens in a dilapidated church that still has lovely stained glass windows and impressive arches but with construction materials littering the floor, in Reid Thompson’s fascinating set. It’s a down-at-heels sacred building, now the home to a group of squatters, many of them children. They come from the shadows to occupy the space and then go into hiding when a troupe of would-be renovators barges in, all giddy with the place’s possibilities as high-end condos.

Godspell: A theatrical tour de force now on stage at ACT in Ridgefield

A Review from I On The Valley

"A total modernized and powerful version of the 1970s classic musical Godspell is now on stage at ACT. It was our first time seeing a play at this theater and we were spellbound by this incredible production. If you see only one play this year, make it Godspell at ACT."

'Godspell' at ACT of CT - A Review by Nancy Sasso Janis, CT Critics Circle

If you have never had the GODSPELL experience, I highly recommend it; this reimagined version runs at ACT through March 8.

A Contemporary Theatre of Connecticut (ACT) has opened a reimagined production of one of my all-time favorite musicals, the early work of Stephen Schwartz GODSPELL. If I had to determine which show I have seen the most times since I was old enough to remember, I am pretty sure that GODSPELL would come out on top.
