There is a scene in the film version from 1973 with Victor Garber as Jesus that has this beautiful shot. It's right after the song "O Bless the Lord My Soul" and during the scene of Beatitudes. Judas says " Blessed are ye... When men shall persecute you and revile you... and say all manner of evil against you... .... falsely.". The camera changes focus from David Haskell as Judas/John The Baptist and back to Jesus again.. and there's this look on his face that I've always felt moved by. It's the first time in the movie where you feel the "walking on eggshells" feeling of the inevitable betrayal. He tries to shake it off, and jests about it with the others. But after that, it's never quite the same. The first  half of the movie has that happy, upbeat feeling to it.. and it's intermittently bitter-sweet after this scene.

I'll admit. I am a HUGE fan of both Stephen Schwartz and Victor Garber. I remember watching this movie as a tiny little child. I drew pictures of Victor Garber as Jesus when I was too young to know who he was. I'm actually going as this character for Halloween this year. Curly hair, Superman Shirt, Suspenders, everything.

I am so proud of this piece. It makes me so happy to know that I made it.

I have plans to send prints to both Victor Garber and Stephen Schwartz. I want them both to have a copy.

This was the first piece I had done in over a year (outside of school) when I did the original version of this. I was in the worst funk of my life, and this is the first thing that brought me out of it.

I live a Godspell-Apprecation life and proud of it <3

It is beautiful! And I don't even know the film.

I'm not familiar with the film either but this wonderful and disconcertingly touching artwork will have me looking it up. Nice.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
