Faithful and nonbelievers alike should find pleasure, and even food for thought, in the Supreme Being's admonitions, insights and sheer gags...

Why See An Act of God?

The audience with the almighty you always wanted

First premiering at Studio 54 in New York in 2015, this immensely funny three-handed comedy has since gone on to tour the country to critical and popular acclaim. Now for Spring 2017, Pittsburgh Public Theater are set to produce the city's first-ever staging. Based on former Daily Show writer David Javerbaum's fearless and critically acclaimed satire/"autobiography" The Last Testament: A Memoir by God, we meet the benevolent deity himself, plus cameos from his two right-hand, er men, Gabriel and Michael as he waxes lyrical on everything from life, the universe and other mysteries including social media!

In this hilarious audience with the Almighty, He sets out to straighten us on the many foibles and misunderstandings that his Ten Commandments have undergone through organized religion and dogma. Why do we invoke His name when someone sneezes? Why do we pray to Him only for the best results in sporting events? Who exactly were Adam and Eve when they weren't sneaking apples off the tree? All these and more are answered in His irreverent and whip-smart style, aided by his two angelic homies!
