One of the more interesting aspects of Stephen Schwartz's Godspell is the plastic nature of the setting. Directors are encouraged to select their own time and place for their version, making each production (hopefully) more personal. Mustard Seed Theatre resumes its season with a production of Godspell set in modern St. Louis, in a neighborhood much like Cherokee Street, emphasizing the role of community building in the musical. As Jesus grows his congregation of followers, so grows the community -- but with his inevitable passing remains the challenge of maintaining the health and well-being of that community. Remove the Son of God from the story and you have the everyday story of thousands of St. Louisans, struggling to hold together neighborhoods and lives. Mustard Seed Theatre presents this very personal incarnation of Godspell at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, with additional performances at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (November 18 through December 11) at the Fontbonne University Fine Arts Theatre (6800 Wydown Boulevard; www.mustardseedtheatre.com). There is no performance on Thanksgiving, but there is one at 8 p.m. Wednesday, November 23. Tickets are $20 to $25.
Nov. 18-20; Wed., Nov. 23; Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 18. Continues through Dec. 11, 2011
