There are three musicals based off of events in the Bible: Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Godspell. How many of those do I love?
At the moment, I only love two. Those two are Godspell and Joseph. I first saw Godspell at Central Piedmont Community College and I first saw Joseph a couple days ago. However, I first got exposed to Joseph a long time ago- the children’s choir, which I was a part of, sang some of the songs from Joseph.
Both of them have songs I love. My favorite song from Godspell is “We Beseech Thee” and my favorite song from Joseph is “Any Dream Will Do”. For some reason, I think I did sing “Any Dream Will Do” in those days a long time ago. Loving songs is my FIRST thing I look at to decide if I even love that musical. It is of no surprise that I love Godspell: Stephen Schwartz wrote that musical, the same person who wrote Wicked.
So, at the moment I only love two biblical musicals.
