Darlinghurst Theatre Company is proud to produce the Australian premiere of the smash hit broadway comedy by David Javerbaum An Act of God, starring three-time Helpmann Award winning actor, Mitchell Butel.
Part chat show, part Ted Talk gone rogue, part sermon, its seventy five minutes of “comedy heaven” – New York Times.
Three-time Helpmann Award winning Actor Mitchell Butel is the chosen one, literally, as God decides to take over his body for the night to deliver the word of God to Sydney audiences. Having grown weary of the Ten Commandments, God has come to correct mankind’s dire misconceptions about his teachings and deliver a radical re-write.
Accompanied by a couple of A-List singing Angels, God arrives like acelestial talk show host to set the record straight and encourage us to do unto others as we would like to be done unto. Described by Vanity Fairas “sinfully funny”, what began as a series of tweets from Javerbaum’s infamous Twitter handle The Tweet of Godevolved into a smash hit Broadway show, previously starringJim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) and Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) as God.
