Jim Parsons-Led AN ACT OF GOD Seeks Angels for Broadway

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Jim Parsons is headed back to Broadway! Producer Jeffrey Finn announced today that four-time Emmy® winner and Golden Globe® Award winner Jim Parsons will play God on Broadway in the new comedy An Act of God. Two-time Tony Award® winner Joe Mantello will direct the play, which 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," and also curator of the Twitter account @TheTweetOfGod, which has over 1.75 million followers.

An Act of God begins performances on May 5, 2015 and officially opens on May 28, 2015 on Broadway at Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street). According to an Equity casting notice, the production is currently seeking Parsons' two co-stars- Michael (30s. An angel of God's. Funny, impulsive, as irreverent as an angel of God's can be) and Gabriel (40s. An angel of God's. By the books; no-nonsense). Auditions for the roles will take place later this week.
