God Shows Up, previously seen at the Playroom Theater, will transfer to The Actor's Temple Theatre for an open-ended engagement beginning April 6.
The new comedy-drama by theatre journalist and playwright Peter Filichia sees God decide to drop in on Earth after a couple of thousand years (and choosing to do so in the broadcast studio of a well-known televangelist). Directed by Christopher Scott (A Class Act), the two-hander stars Lou Liberatore (Daniel’s Husband) and Christopher Sutton (Spamalot).
“For a number of years, I have wondered, if there is a god, how would that god would respond to the world that those in his image have built,” says producer Eric Krebs. "I challenged Peter Filichia to write such a play, and here we are... God Shows Up. Peter's script is far more controversial, funny and philosophical than I ever might have imagined. I can't wait for the shouting matches to begin after performances."
God Shows Up will officially open at its new home May 13.
The creative team is rounded out by Josh Lacovelli (set design), Michael Piatkowski (costume design), Joan Racho-Jansen (lighting design), and Andy Evan Cohen (projection and sound design). Christine Viega is production stage manager.
