HRTC Gets Ready For A Visit From The Almighty with AN ACT OF GOD
God is here-in human form-and She wants to set the record straight with a new set of Commandments. Joined by Her faithful angels, Michael and Gabriel, She's ready to clear up a few misconceptions, share a few secrets and answer the big questions that have baffled mankind since Creation itself. The comedy's divine in the hottest show since the burning bush.
Don't miss the show The New York Times calls "A gut-busting-riff on the never-ending folly of mankind's attempts to fathom God's wishes..."
An Act of God will be Kevin Moore's (Director) 31st show he has directed at HRTC. Moore's last show at the Loft was the comedic hit based on the 80's sitcom, Family Ties.
The cast of three is made up of Human Race veterans.
Sara Mackie, who last appeared on the Loft stage in Family Ties, will be playing God Herself. Joshua Levine, last seen on the Loft stage in Hail Mary! plays Archangel Michael. Scott Stoney, no stranger to the Loft stage (HRTC's The House, Other Desert Cities, Angels in America, and many more), will play Archangel Gabriel.
David Javerbaum (Playwright) is an American comedy writer and currently an Executive Producer for Fusion Network to oversee development of a news satire block of programming. As the former Executive Producer of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," his work for that program, including four years as Head Writer, has earned him 11 Emmys, two additional Emmy nominations, two Peabody Awards, and Television Critics Awards for both Best Comedy and Best News Show.
Eric Moore (scenic designer) designs his 5th production at The Human Race Theatre. Ayn Kaethchen (costume designer), Resident Artists John Rensel (lighting designer) and Jay Brunner (sound designer) round out the design team. Jacquelyn Duncan is the production stage manager.
