Original 1971 Orchestrations
I am a huge fan of your work, and Godspell is one of my absolute favorite musicals! That said, I am so thrilled to have the chance to be directing it this coming summer, as a community theatre production in my hometown. I am also so glad that I found this site, which has proved to be an invaluable resource in helping me mount this production of Godspell. That said, I would like to ask a question that I haven't found on this site: Are the original 1971 Off-Broadway orchestrations available for use in shows today? I love the feel of the music on the original cast album and I would much rather use those orchestrations (if possble) for the production. Could you let me know if those are available and how I might obtain them for this production.
Thanks Very Much,
When you license the show from either Music Theatre International or Theatre Maximus, you will receive the original orchestrations. Hope you have a great time with the show! Best, Michael
