By Ken Werther

In the early spring of 2015, An Act of God made his first of 76 appearances at Studio 54 on Broadway. He proceeded to hold forth through the early summer on matters of faith and folly to peals of raucous laughter. Audiences were more than a little surprised to discover that in a history-making metaphysical transformation, God looked an awful lot like four-time Emmy Award-winner Jim Parsons.

The magic and mirth will continue when God arrives onstage at the Ahmanson Theatre this month looking an awful lot like Will & Grace star and Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes. I expect that a great many of us will be making our way downtown to sample God’s sense of humor on a myriad of issues, and to hear his version of familiar biblical stories. Rumor has it that he will also be delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, and who wants to miss that?

An Act of God is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello (The Normal Heart, Assassins). I’m fortunate to have met Joe all the way back in 1992 when he was in the original cast of Angels In America at the Mark Taper Forum, and this guy is the real deal. So let’s see … Sean Hayes, Joe Mantello, God … I’m there!
