Denver Center for the Performing Arts Broadway/Cabaret presents the Denver debut of An Act of God beginning October 15 at the Garner Galleria Theatre. Smash and The Addams Family actor Wesley Taylor stars as God.
Directed by Geoffrey Kent, the cast also includes Steven Cole Hughes as Michael and Erik Sandvold as Gabriel with Steven J. Burge (understudy God/Michael). The entire cast and director make their DCPA Broadway/Cabaret debut with the production; performances are currently scheduled through March 12, 2017.
An Act of God is based on the critically acclaimed book “written by God and transcribed by David Javerbaum.” Javerbaum is a 13-time Emmy Award winner for his work as a head writer and executive producer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Other members of the creative team include Lisa M. Orzolek (scenic design), Meghan Anderson Doyle (costume design), Charles R. MacLeod (lighting design) and Anson Nicholson (sound design).
The play premiered on Broadway May 7, 2015, starring Jim Parsons, and ran through August 2, 2015. It recently played a return engagement on Broadway starring Sean Hayes. This production in Denver is one of the first regional productions.
An Act of God is part of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ 2016-2017 Broadway Season. Tickets start at $35 and are on sale at DenverCenter.org.
