"An Act of God" by David Javerbaum
Fountain Hills Theater is proud to announce the opening of An Act of God, a new comedy by David Javerbaum. After conquering Broadway, the King of the Universe is coming to Fountain Hills for the first time ever! In An Act of God, the sinfully funny and critically acclaimed new play where God and His devoted angels answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation… in just 90 minutes! He’s finally arrived to set the record straight… and He’s not holding back! “Delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, as transcribed by the man we might call the Mosesde nos jours, David Javerbaum, God is really killing it up there. How funny is the guy? He’s Jon Stewart funny, plus Stephen Colbert funny. (Mr. Javerbaum has written for both.)…Verily I could quote every other line from Mr. Javerbaum’s annotation of the Scriptures and gather a chuckle, so deliriously funny is he as a sort of amateur theologian and stand-up comedy genius rolled into one.” —The New York Times. “Javerbaum’s radical rewrite of the Ten Commandments—the evening is structured around God’s introduction of revised laws—is clever and even refreshingly positive, insisting on the separation of church and state and encouraging us to believe in ourselves, not some elderly white guy in the sky.” —Time Out (New York). “The jokes keep landing—nearly one per sentence—and…they are always smart. But Javerbaum [is] too theatrically savvy to leave it at that. Another note, slowly introduced among the zingers and rim shots, eventually becomes dominant, and this one, while still funny, is darker and potentially more theologically challenging than mere spoofs of Bible stories.” —New York Magazine. An Act of God is irreverent and unflinching and, as such, is not recommended for children, any ‘phobics’ or the theologically weak of heart.
