An Act of God, stars four-time Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons playing the role of 'God,' and is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello.

Synopsis: "The King of the Universe is tackling His greatest challenge yet: Broadway. This spring, God takes the form of four-time Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jim Parsons in An Act of God, a 90-minute comedy where the Almighty and His devoted angels answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. He’s finally arrived to set the record straight... and He’s not holding back!"

Casting of God's two angels will be announced at a later date.
