When Emmy winner David Javerbaum’s irreverent new comedy, An Act of God, arrives in Arizona, the title role will be played by a woman for the first time: stage and screen star Paige Davis, a frequent presence in the long-running Broadway musical Chicago.

Emmy winner Jim Parsons starred in the title role when the production debuted on Broadway in 2015; this past summer, the role was played by fellow Emmy winner Sean Hayes.

The Arizona Theatre Company production, starring Davis, will be presented October 22-November 12 at the Temple of Music and Art, 333 S. Scott Ave. in Tucson and November 17-December 4 at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe in Phoenix. Oscar nominee Marsha Mason directs.

Davis, according to press notes, “arrives in Arizona with her devoted angels to answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued humankind since the Creation.” She will be joined onstage by two loyal angels, James Gleason (Modern Family, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd) and Max Lawrence.

Davis, also seen on Broadway in Boeing-Boeing, hosted the home-renovation TV show Trading Spaces.

Tickets are available in person in Phoenix at the Herberger Theater Center or by calling (602) 256-6995 or online for performances in both cities at www.arizonatheatre.org. For more information call (520) 622-2823 in Tucson, (602) 256-6995 in Phoenix or visit www.arizonatheatre.org.
