Now Playing: "On the Willows" ~ Original Off-Broadway Production Cast Recording
Sad news I'm afraid. The new Broadway Revival of Godspell has been cancelled. They were short $1 million dollars to produce it, and it is no more.
I didn't believe my dad, even until he said it was in the Post. Annette sent me the article online and though I still refuse to believe it, well ... it's probably true.
Still, I won't be brought down by this - it's bound to return someday. Still, it's sad to hear. I really wanted to see a live performance of the original production, seeing as all I've ever seen is the film and according to others, they're really different from each other.
What's even more sad to hear is the actors in the show had given up their other jobs to be in it, and are now out of work. :(
But seriously, why does it cost so much money to produce a show on Broadway? What, is the scenery made out of solid gold? Can't they just put the money on loan and pay it back with the money they get from tickets?? C'mon, people!! x_x
