Peter Filichia's GOD SHOWS UP to Play Limited Run at The Playroom Theatre

Eric Krebs will present God Shows Up, a new comedy-drama by noted theatre journalist and playwright Peter Filichia. Performances will begin on Thursday, January 31 at 7:00pm (for a limited engagement through February 21, 2019) at The Playroom Theater (151 West 46th Street - between Broadway and 6th Avenue). Opening Night is set for Sunday, February 10 at 7:00pm.

God Shows Up asks: What happens when God chooses to drop in to his creation of Earth after an absence of a couple of thousand years? Why does he choose the broadcast studio of a well-known televangelist who serves all faiths from his megachurch in Saint Louis? What is God's true take on God? What is God's true take on religion?

"For a number of years, I have wondered, if there is a god, how would that god respond to the world that those in his image have built," said producer Eric Krebs explaining the motivation of the play. "I challenged Peter Filichia to write such a play, and here we are... God Shows Up. Peter's script is far more controversial, funny and philosophical than I ever might have imagined. I can't wait for the shouting matches to begin after performances."

Directed by Christopher Scott, the cast features Maggie Bofill (LABryinth Company Member), Lou Liberatore (Daniel's Husband) and Christopher Sutton (Spamalot).

The creative team for God Shows Up: Josh Iacovelli (set design), Michael Piatkowski (costume design), Joan Racho-Jansen (lighting design) and Andy Evan Cohen (projection and sound design). Craig R. Rosenthal is Production Stage Manager. Matt Balfour is Assistant Stage Manager.

God Shows Up will play the following performance schedule: Thurs-Sun at 7 pm. All tickets are $20 and may be purchased online here.
