(Jeremy Daniel)

After nearly 300 performances, rock musical Godspell will end its Broadway engagement on June 24, producers announced Tuesday. This latest revival at Circle in the Square Theatre is the first staging on Broadway since its original inception off-Broadway in 1971. The show, which features former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu, opened in Nov., 2011.

“I’ve never been more proud of a show than I am of Godspell,” said lead producer Ken Davenport. “For nine months this incredible company of performers brought joy into the hearts of more than 153,000 people (and blasted them with over 1,000 pounds of confetti) … forever changing their lives, and mine as well.”

Godspell will launch its first national tour in 2013-14 season.
