Pharisees in David Greene’s Godspell

January 23, 2012

My church hosts a community theatre that is putting on the play Godspell in a couple months. I have been hearing a lot about Godspell in the past few years, but I have never known anything about it. I decided to get the movie produced by David Greene and I have to tell you it was ridiculously awesome. Jesus is a clown with an afro with a hippee following. I am fairly certain I laughed through most of the movie uncontrollably. One of the best parts though had to have been when the Pharisees accost Jesus. Instead of a group of humans the Pharisees are represented by a garbage bag monster with people hiding inside of it controlling the eyes, arms and mouth. The mouth is some sort of slinky that kind of bobs around when the Pharisee is talking. Jesus defeats the Pharisee monster by throwing dirty clothes on it after quoting scripture. I could not not share this with you. Take a look at a few shots from the movie below.

    Jesus Christ Superstar, Godspell = blasphemy, don’t cha think?
    I’m still trying to figure out if Moses had horns.

    Thank God I’m baptized!
