Stage musical, 1981. [For the first part, I'm just quoting the information as I found it.]

- "He made his professional debut in the National Tour of Godspell alternating Jesus and John the Baptist. Anthony subsequently played the leading role when the show came back to the West End at the Prince of Wales Theatre." (A Patriot for Me (Chichester) playbill, 1983).
