This sent me off on the search of YouTube for one particular song.
In college, attending all ten nights of the theatre department's production of Jesus Christ Superstar actually was the catalyst for my return to theatre as a course of study. I'd been a communications major at that point. I have the soundtrack and know it intimately, some of the songs are so tied to the actors in that production. For instance, it'd be hard to beat Josh Mostel's "King Herod's Song", but the actor who did it in that production was phenomenal.
Another musical of religious theme from that era has music that always caught my attention, but until last year, I didn't own it, the movie was purchased at rock bottom price during Circuit City's demise. As a huge fan of musical theatre, it is not typical to know a soundtrack very well and not see the show.
And so it is with Godspell.
One of my favorite songs off that Broadway cast recording is "We Beseech Thee", but until I watched my movie, I did not know that this one was cut from the film.
