AN ACT OF GOD Starring Sean Hayes Heads to the Hereafter Next Weekend
A heavenly reminder! The hit Broadway comedy An Act of God, starring Tony nominee and Emmy winner Sean Hayes, will conclude its 14-week strictly limited engagement on Sunday, September 4, 2016 at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street).
Written by God, transcribed by 13-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum and directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, the comedy has returned to New York after launching the 2015-2016 Broadway season in a sold-out, critically acclaimed run and a second successful run starring Sean Hayes in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
An Act of God is based on the critically acclaimed book written by God and transcribed by David Javerbaum. Javerbaum is a 13-time Emmy Award winner for his work as a head writer and executive producer for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
The play premiered on Broadway on May 7, 2015 and ran in an acclaimed, limited run through August 2, 2015 starring God in the body of Jim Parsons. It was the first Broadway production of the 2015-2016 season to recoup its initial investment.
The King of the Universe is back to tackle His greatest challenge yet: a second summer in New York. God takes the form of Emmy Award winner Sean Hayes in An Act of God, a 90-minute comedy where the Almighty and His devoted Angels answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. He's returned to set the record straight to a whole new crop of believers ... and He's not holding back!
