The Broadway revival of the hit musical Godspell, which was to begin performances at the Barrymore Theatre on September 29, with an official opening on October 23, has been indefinitely postponed due to financial issues.

"I am devastated that, due to the loss of a major investor in the harsh reality of a slowing economy, there were no other options at this time than to postpone," producer Adam Epstein, said in a statement. "I could not in good conscience move forward without full confidence that the capitalization was in place and that all of those employed by the production could be responsibly taken care of. Even in light of the situation, my passion for this vibrant production is unwavering and it is my goal to regroup as soon as possible."

The production of the John Michael Tebelak-Stephen Schwartz musical was to be directed by Daniel Goldstein, and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli. The show was to feature sets by David Korins, costumes by Miranda Hoffman, lighting by Ben Stanton, and sound by Mike Farfalla.

Gavin Creel, Diana DeGarmo, Joshua Henry, Uzo Aduba, Andrew Arrington, Sara Chase, Celisse Henderson, Morgan James, David Josefsberg, Telly Leung, Kyle Post, Dana Steingold, Maria Thayer, and Daniel Torres were set to star.
