Product Description

David Edward Byrd's newly-published Artist's Edition Poster for "Godspell" at the Cherry Lane Theater off Broadway, 1971

Godspell is a story about the gospel of Matthew, written by Stephen Schwartz from a book by John-Michael Tebelak. It opened off Broadway in 1971, but returned for a Broadway revival in 2011-2012.

About "Godspell," David says, "I was in producer Edgar Lansbury's office to discuss a new show he would be opening Off-Broadway when he took me to his window. I'm doing a musical based on the life of Jesus, and I want the poster to look just like that, he said, pointing down Broadway. If you leaned out his window you would see a giant version of my Follies poster on the marquee of the the Wintergarden Theatre. I agreed to the job, figuring a musical about Jesus fit the Snowball in Hell category. Well, it ran 8 years and even became a movie. At first I jokingly called it "Son of Follies," but now it is even more recognized than its up-town predecessor."

This Artist Proof is an authentic, licensed edition created and personally signed by David. It is a very nice print, very frameable and collectible. It comes with my signed Certificate Of Authenticity and Guarantee (COA).

This poster is an authentic artists edition created and personally signed by David Edward Byrd.

David Byrd has secured a place in rock poster history. But along the way he has made dozens of highly memorable, iconic poster images for not only the Fillmore East (where he was the only poster artist), but for Broadway shows such as Follies, Tommy, Jesus Christ Superstar, Godspell, Little Shop of Horrors and many, many more.
