Featured Reviews For An Act of God


‘An Act of God’ Broadway revival review: Sean Hayes terrific in comedic monologue - amNY
The show has been updated to include a few new zingers. For instance, God announces that he knows full well that the crowd is only there because they couldn't get tickets to "Hamilton." In fact, God can't snag a ticket, either. Even at just 90 minutes, "An Act of God" (directed by the prolific Joe Mantello) is long-winded and full of unoriginal jabs at easy targets, but it is cute and occasionally witty . Hayes, who appeared on Broadway six years ago in the musical "Promises, Promises" and is best remembered as the flamboyant Jack on "Will and Grace," has terrific stage presence and makes for a giddy, loosened-up and irreverent host.

Sean Hayes is divinely funny in An Act of God on Broadway - TimeOut NY
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!
