GODSPELL

The original cast defined the personalities of each character as the show was developed. Most of the characters' names are simply the first name of the actor, so the characters are more easily identified by the song they sing. The only two named roles are Jesus, and John the Baptist, who doubles in the show as Judas Iscariot.

The stage version applies the following names and traits to the main group of characters who act out the parables and sing: Gilmer (silly and a great storyteller), Herb (goofy and entertaining), Jeffrey (happy and excited), Joanne (eager and enthusiastic), Lamar (clumsy and unintentionally funny), Peggy (shy and loyal), and Sonia (dramatic with a put-on sensuality)
