This new comedy asks: what happens when God drops in on Earth after being away for a few millennia? More…
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?
See it if you'd like a send-up of televangelists and their undiscerning flock. Little plot; lots of ideas. Exposes greed, commercialization, lies.
Don't see it if you hold traditional religious beliefs; GSU argues for tolerance. The action is choppy; some material is draggy. Mostly fun/insightful.
See it if Good acting, directing and staging. Tele Evangelist meets God. If you want a show that doesn't have good jokes throughout.
Don't see it if Show starts off great then God hashtags it up and gets too campy. 80 minutes long.
See it if Vicious satire of televangelists. Hypocrisy of praising God, collecting donations & driving a Lexus. Many zingers & surprising turns.
Don't see it if Best when the two faces of the televangelist shine unabashedly. Less fun when God becomes overtly hostile and excessively talkative.
See it if u want to see a funny, punny, divine opening scene spoofing televangelism... followed by a trite, hackneyed indictment of organized religion
Don't see it if u believe in the historicity of the Bible/accept it as the literal word of god; u believe in the benefits of money u send to televangelists.
See it if A sardonic parry at big business televangelicalism doesn't really say anything new but constant barrage of one-liners provide zip & gusto
Don't see it if Glib, joking thrust & parry routines almost bury comedy but neat, late plot twists redeems it w/Sutton making cartoon minister almost human
See it if 1st 15 mins promising Saturday Night Live-like satire of oily Televangelist (TE)
Don't see it if after 15 mins play goes flat; weak plot; God who shows up is dull, spouts cliches re cruelties of organized religion
See it if you like puns and silly humor. There are a lot of clever moments although the overall plot is somewhat predictable.
Don't see it if you are a serious born again Christian who takes offense easily.
See it if God goes on Live TV to exposing the TV televangelist who want money for prays.
Don't see it if If you take thing serious, and offended by religious humour.
See it if Faith-based satire with Male/Female Gods exposing televangelist as Lucifer on his live telecast. Fear & guilt are the prayer-conditioning.
Don't see it if Merch for sale:"Catch up with Jesus Ketchup, Lettuce Praise & Relish Him." Bumper stickers strewn together. Scripture deconstruction. Venom.
See it if you enjoy a very witty play about religion and pay for pray preachers. God does show up and zings it good to a certain preacher on TV.
Don't see it if you support Evangelical preachers. This play would not be for you.
See it if You want to see a TV evangelist interview “God” on his weekly TV show
Don't see it if You want to be challenged in anyway. This is incredibly predictable from the very beginning

Don't see it if You do not care to hear ridicule of religious beliefs or you prefer down to earth and believable plots.
See it if You want to see a very well written play performed by some very good performers. You want to see what it is like when God shows up.
Don't see it if You are too serious and get offended about a play that pokes fun at some aspects of religion. You don't want to laugh.
See it if you want to have several laughs at the hypocrisy of televangelists. All 3 actors superbly portray their characters, and God does show up.
Don't see it if you are or know a televangelist or do not like to see anyone poking fun at organized religion.
See it if you enjoy good-natured, campy humor aimed at the seeming or outright hypocrisy in how religion is practiced or interpreted; intimate staging
Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with darkness, literally—there are longish stretches where staging calls for near blackout; averse to mocking religion
See it if You enjoy a good old-fashioned send-up of religion. You enjoy George Carlin.
Don't see it if You are looking for an intelligent send-up of religion. You are looking for something with a substantial plot.
See it if You want to have fun, enjoy a good show which makes you think. There were so many moments of spot on jokes, the dialogues were well written
Don't see it if You are easily offended by Religous, christian, Evangelist referral (there are so many of them), or not a fan of small compact theater space
See it if You want to see a hackneyed diatribe against religion that seems more fitting to a saturday night live skit and goes on and on
