FEATURED REVIEWS FOR An Act of God

Theater review: 'Act of God' with Sean Hayes
7 / 10

Last summer, when he took to the Broadway stage in 'An Act of God' to give the lowdown on what He's about, and how He regards humanity, which is not too highly, He appeared in the guise of Jim Parsons, of the sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory.' For this year's return engagement, which opened Monday night at the Booth Theatre, He's decided to come as Sean Hayes, who used to be featured on 'Will & Grace.' ('He doesn't excel at [anything],' the Lord explains, 'but in the end, we find ourselves rooting for him, don't we?') The mostly very funny 90-minute evening, in which God is assisted by two angels, or, as he calls them, wingmen (David Josefsberg and James Gleason), is an opportunity to hear first-hand about such big moments as the Great Flood, the delivery of the Ten Commandments and, of course, at the beginning, the Creation. ('On day two, I put a firmament in the midst of the waters. Yes. That was it. Slow day, day two. I probably underscheduled.')

Sean Hayes is divinely funny in An Act of God on Broadway
8 / 10

I could say that the return engagement of An Act of God, now with Sean Hayes, is a revelation, a miraculous epiphany or similar 'religious' experience. Truth to tell, I was already a believer. I thoroughly enjoyed David Javerbaum's theological satire last summer when it starred Jim Parsons, and I could watch Hayes's bratty-campy shtick all night. So what if Hayes and his helpful angels Gabriel and Michael (James Gleason, David Josefsberg) are preaching to the choir? Preach out, Sean!
