1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointed, 17 Jan. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Godspell [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I saw the original Godspell show in London and have since it since as a local amateur production. Both stage shows were absolutely fantastic and I cannot believe how it has been represented in this DVD. The stage show was an extremely moving interpretation of the gospel with wonderful music; even though it was presented in a light hearted way with the cast dressed as clowns / hipppies. This DVD does not represent the original feeling and emotion. Songs that were originally sung with feeling were now sung with a comedy aspect. At times it is like watching a childish slapstick comedy. Also the order of the story and songs has been changed from the order in the stage show. Anyone who remembers the original show and is hoping to recreate this, will be very disappointed. A complete waste of money.

I agree. I saw the stage show several times in various places and have the LP, and I am disappointed not to have found a Tape/DVD of any of them. Even saw one with Sue Pollard in it (Hi_Di_Hi), and they were always great fun,and, as you say, very moving.

I saw the original Musical Godspell at The Round House and agree, the original stage show was extremely moving, thought provoking and with wonderful music. I appreciate Jan "Jan"'s review for pointing out the differences between this and the modern version - I would not wish to spoil my memories of the wonderful original show.
