Friday To-Do: 'Godspell'

‘GODSPELL'
7:30 p.m., Weekend Theater. $14-$18.


The Weekend Theater bills “Godspell,” the musical that first hit off-Broadway in 1971, as an agape — a love-feast — dedicated to light and joy and love. Love-feast? There will, at least, be singing, probably joyful. Drawing its name from an archaic pronunciation of “gospel,” “Godspell” explores the teachings of Jesus from the book of Matthew, parables like the Good Samaritan, Lazarus and the prodigal son. Expect humor, irreverence and singing. The musical numbers combine the lyrics of traditional hymns with more modern music — rock, folk, country and pop. You might remember the exuberant “Day by Day.” It made it to No. 13 on the Billboard charts in 1972.
