Featured Reviews For An Act of God


'An Act of God': The Second Coming, With Sean Hayes - NBC New York
Hayes, who kept us in stitches as flighty pal Jack McFarland on NBC's "Will & Grace," may not be "infinity" years old," as the script -- based on a Twitter feed by former "Daily Show" honcho David Javerbaum -- allows. But he isn't the young kid we remember from a TV sitcom, either. A touch of gray has crept into Hayes' hair. Forehead lines are visible when he furrows his brow. I'd normally stay clear of comment on a performer's physical traits, but there's a gravitas evident that's a help, here. Y'know. If you're gonna play God and all. (Hayes previously earned hallelujahs on Broadway for "Promises, Promises," in 2010.)

Review: ‘An Act of God’ Is Back, With Sean Hayes - New York Times
Technically speaking, Mr. Hayes is not portraying God. In his boundless mystery, God has chosen to come before us in the guise of Mr. Hayes. "For lo, I have endowed him with a winning, likable personality and know of a certainty that your apprehension of my depthless profundities will by aided by his offbeat charm," as God-in-the-person-of-Mr.-Hayes says. God later adds, "He has no idea he's here." The Almighty is not wrong about Mr. Hayes's appeal. (How could an all-knowing being be wrong?) Just as Mr. Parsons made for an endearingly cuddly deity, so does Mr. Hayes. He almost looks like a grown-up cherub - albeit one who's been on the Atkins Diet - and he channels the same fresh-faced boyishness and impish zest that made the character Jack a constantscene-stealer on "Will and Grace."
