A comic drama about the struggle for power in a Houston mega-church, God’s Man In Texas was hailed at its Humana Festival debut as “the pick of the litter” in 1999. Over the following two years, it became one of the 10 most produced plays in the country, including productions at The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles and The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego.
Playwright/Director David Rambo is the author of the plays The Lady With All The Answers (Off-Broadway starring Judith Ivey, Lortel Award nomination), The Ice-Breaker, Babbitt, an all new book for Lerner and Loewe’s Paint Your Wagon, The Lifeguard: Ronald Reagan and His Story, and God’s Man In Texas. His work has been widely produced at regional theatres throughout the country, including Actors Theatre of Louisville, Geffen Playhouse, The Old Globe, Denver Center Theatre, Alliance Theatre, and The Pasadena Playhouse. He has adapted several classic screenplays for live performance, including All About Eve, Casablanca, Adam’s Rib, and Sunset Boulevard, which was produced at the Hollywood Bowl with John Mauceri conducting Franz Waxman’s Oscar-winning score. Rambo has written and produced hundreds of hours of prime time television, including Empire, Revolution, V, and seven seasons of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
