Photo Flash: Legendary Filmmaker Steven Spielberg Visits Broadway's HAND TO GOD


Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg stopped backstage to praise the cast of HAND TO GOD after seeing Sunday's matinee performance. Fun fact: Tony nominee Steven Boyer currently appears onscreen with Tom Hanks in Spielberg's latest film BRIDGE OF SPIES. Scroll down for a photo of Spielberg with the company!

Comedy and television icon Bob Saget will soon step into the role of 'Pastor Greg' in the Tony Award-nominated comedy Hand to God beginning November 3, 2015 through the production's previously announced closing on January 3, 2016. He will join current Hand to God cast members Steven Boyer, Geneva Carr, Sarah Stiles, and Michael Oberholtzer. Three-time Tony nominee Marc Kudisch, who originated the role of 'Pastor Greg', exits the production on November 1st to begin production on Baritones Unbound.

Hand to God plays at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street) through January 3, 2016 before immediately transferring to London's West End, with performances beginning on February 5, 2016 at the famed Vaudeville Theatre.

Playwright Robert Askins goes for the jugular-by way of sock puppet-in his hilarious and heartbreaking new comedy Hand to God. In it, a shy teenager named Jason is surprised when his Bible School project-a puppet named Tyrone-takes on a shocking, truth-telling personality all its own, forcing everyone in its path, especially Jason's mother Margery, to confront their own demons as they search for redemption through a mix of riotous laughter and genuinely shocking twists.

Moritz von Stuelpnagel directs. The design team for Hand to God includes scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes by Sydney Maresca, lighting by Jason Lyons, sound by Jill BC Du Boff, puppet design by Marte Johanne Ekhougen, and fight direction by Robert Westley.
