"Godspell is a joyously noisy romp that goes off like an extra-long string of firecrackers...the result is not a stale exercise in boomer nostalgia à la Hair but a fizzy, family-friendly show that deserves to run…well, forever."
- The Wall Street Journal
"Happily, this revival, the first ever on Broadway, strikes just the right tone. The young, multicultural cast is extravagantly talented, but director Daniel Goldstein sustains a relaxed, let's-put-on-show vibe...Regardless of your faith, or lack of it, you'll leave this Godspell a believer in the transporting power of musical theater."
- USA Today
"[I]t's clear that Godspell has anointed a new group of Broadway stars and we are the richer for it."
