The classic musical “Godspell” is making a long-anticipated return to the Broadway stage on Oct. 13. “Godspell” recounts the Gospel according to St. Matthew through a pulsating rock score composed by Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of “Wicked” and “Pippin.”This time around, “Godspell” assembles a cast filled with talented, young actors, such as Hunter Parrish (“Weeds,” “Spring Awakening”) in the role of Jesus, Telly Leung (“Glee,” “Wicked”), and Anna Maria Perez de Tagle (“Hannah Montana,””Camp Rock”). The freshness and youthfulness of this new cast promises to bring a breath of fresh air to an already well beloved musical. “Godspell” opens on Nov. 7 and plays at Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theatre.
