TNT Brings Heavenly Host of Stars to Birmingham
Terrific New Theatre continues its 31st season with the "divine" comedy, "An Act of God." This Alabama premiere opens Thursday, April 27th at 8PM and runs through Saturday, May 20, 2017.
Directed by TNT Artistic Director Tam DeBolt, and uniting three of Birmingham's most popular improvisational comedians, this ultra-comedic - and ultra-irreverent - production serves up a hilarious revision of the Ten Commandments to suit the needs of today. TNT favorite Nick Crawford stars as God, in corporeal form, and is flanked by Mike Cunliffe and Kevin Van Hyning as the archangels Michael and Gabriel, respectively.
"An Act of God" was written by 13-time Emmy winner David Javerbaum, of "The Daily Show." Local customization of the script centers on Birmingham as the trio answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation, with an Alabama twist. The result is a night of sidesplitting situations. The play debuted on Broadway in 2015 with four-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") at the helm and then was revived by Sean Hayes ("Will and Grace") in 2016.
The New York Times said of the "An Act of God" playwright: "...so deliriously funny...he as a sort of amateur theologian and comedy genius rolled into one." This is the kind of material perfectly suited for the TNT audience and anyone who wants or needs to laugh out loud.
