One of Broadway's most beloved musicals, Godspell opened off-Broadway on May 17, 1971. The structure is a series of parables, based on the Gospel of St. Matthew (though three are recorded only in the Gospel of Luke). Interspersed with a variety of modern music, including “Day by Day," reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in the summer of 1972. Most of the music is set primarily to lyrics from traditional hymns.The performance ends with a recreation of the passion of Christ.
