Stephen Schwartz and Godspell Stars Reunite on Stars in the House May 22
StarsintheHouse, the daily live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the hit musical Godspell May 22.
The John-Michael Tebelak–Stephen Schwartz musical debuted Off-Broadway May 17, 1971, at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Guests for the 8 PM ET stream include composer Schwartz plus original starsPeggy Gordon, Joanne Jonas, Gilmer McCormick, Steve Nathan, and Mark Planner, as well as George Salazar, part of the cast of the Broadway revival.
Stars in the House launched March 16 last year to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
New shows—streaming Tuesday–Saturday at 8 PM ET—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director.
