Hand to God, starring Steven Boyer in his acclaimed performance as a boy and his foul-mouthed hand puppet, will play its final performance on Broadway Jan. 3, 2016. The Tony-nominated show will have run nine months and 337 performances at the Booth Theatre.

The show opened April 7, 2015, at the Booth Theatre, marking the Broadway debuts of playwright Robert Askins and director Moritz von Stuelpnagel. Bob Saget is scheduled to join the cast Nov. 3, replacing Marc Kudisch as the amorous Pastor Greg.

Hand to God, 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."

The Booth Theatre is located at 222 West 45th Street. Visit
