Godspell (West End) Poster

An original "Godspell" Theatre poster (12 1/2"x 20") for the Wyndham's theatre, London. The poster reprises the artwork from the original 1971 American advertising campaign by David Byrd (known for both his rock music posters & also cinema poster illustration).

 

Although "Godspell" initially debuted at the Roundhouse (Nov 1971) it quickly moved to the Wyndham's running from Jan '72 to Oct '74. Cast members at the Wyndham's included the likes of David Essex, Jeremy Irons, Martti Webb, Gay Soper & Julie Covington. As the counter-culture movement took hold in the late 1960's-early 70's, so theatre in both the US & UK reflected this with a series of controversial stage shows (ie, "Oh Calcutta", "Hair", "Jesus Christ Superstar") & "Godspell" was very much from this milieu.
