About the show

In 'An Act of God,' the Almighty ('Will & Grace' star Sean Hayes) and His devoted angels answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. More…

The King of the Universe takes on His greatest challenge: Broadway. God—in the form of Sean Hayes—has finally arrived to set the record straight…and He's not holding back! Based on the book 'The Last Testament: A Memoir by God,' this 90-minute comedy was written by David Javerbaum, former head writer of 'The Daily Show,' and directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello. The show was previously mounted on Broadway in summer 2015 with Jim Parsons as God.

Clever, Funny

Don't see it if you don't want to see through basically one long monologue. A few lines by the angels . .. but basically just God talking for 90 minutes!

"A gut-busting-funny riff on the never-ending folly of mankind’s attempts to fathom God’s wishes…Mr. Javerbaum’s wit, one is tempted to say, is almost as infinite as God’s wisdom. There’s a good gag a minute, maybe more, in this 90-minute show. And in Mr. Hayes, God has a delightful infinite-wisd...

"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.

"When Parsons played the role, his charm pulled the audience through these dark and thrilling passages. Hayes isn’t charming; rather, he’s 'charming.' His stage presentation involves multiple reflections of insincerity. The funny parts are slightly less funny as a result...On the other hand, the ...

"Was it really necessary to bring the well-intended but underwhelming comedic monologue 'An Act of God' back to Broadway with Sean Hayes?...Even at just 90 minutes, 'An Act of God' is long-winded and full of unoriginal jabs at easy targets, but it is cute and occasionally witty...Hayes has terrif...
