VIDEO: Sean Hayes' Livestream Chat With Fans Before First Preview of AN ACT OF GOD
Modeled after Parsons for its original Broadway run, the play has been revised to fit its new star. Hayes has previously toured An Act of God in San Francisco and Los Angeles, but new material has been added for 2016 New York.
Shortly before his May 28th first Broadway preview, Sean Hayes took to Facebook to livestream a few words from his dressing room.
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!
