In a statement, producer McCollum said, "We are genuinely thrilled that Broadway audiences have discovered—and are talking about—the diabolical charms of Robert Askins’ brave new comedy. It is an honor to continue to share this extraordinary production with New York theatergoers into the new year and beyond."
Hand to God, by Robert Askins, received five 2015 Tony Award nominations, including Best Play, Direction of a Play (Moritz von Stuelpnagel), Actor in a Leading Role in a Play (Steven Boyer), Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Geneva Carr) and Actress in a Featured Role in a Play (Sarah Stiles), but did not win any.
The comedy, according to press notes, "centers on shy, inquisitive student Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door and—most especially—his mother are thrown into further upheaval when Jason’s hand puppet Tyrone—once soft-spoken—takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us."
