With this body of work, Wan presents that the “Black identity” could never be contained within constructs and, “the ownership of its grotesque characterizations not only do not represent or belong to the Black community, but are not the responsibility of the Black community to navigate or carry anymore.”

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
Featuring tons of familiar songs, Godspell will have you dancing in the aisles.
