In a different kind of religious revival, Broadway musical Godspell delivers a jazzed up and dressed down interpretation of the final seven days of Jesus’ life. The spectacular Stephen Schwartz play imbibes the gospel of Matthew with jazz, country and of course, gospel tunes—all accented with fantastic costumes. As biblical as the plot is, don’t expect a Sunday service—the show is packed with unabashed fun performed by the Black Box Players in conjunction with Aldersgate United Methodist Church.

Thursday 7/31. Free, 7:30pm. Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 1500 Rio Rd. www.blackboxplayers.com
