Reviews are in for the outdoor presentation of Godspell at Berkshire Theatre Group, which opened August 7 in a tent outside the company’s Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The production is one of America’s first Equity-approved outdoor stagings of a musical since the COVID-19 pandemic shuttered theatres around the world this past spring.
Nicholas Edwards stars as Jesus, with Tim Jones as Judas and Hanna Koczela as the Host. The Stephen Schwartz–John-Michael Tebelak musical is directed by Alan Filderman.
