Preview performances of the hit Broadway play “An Act of God” begin Saturday, January 30, 2016, at the Center Theatre Group / Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. Emmy winner Sean Hayes will play God in a limited six-week engagement of the new comedy “An Act of God” which opens on February 10 and continues through March 13.
Joining the previously announced Sean Hayes are David Josefsberg (as Michael) and James Gleason (as Gabriel).
“An Act of God” was written by God, transcribed by 13-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello. The play premiered on Broadway on May 7, 2015, and ran in an acclaimed, limited run through August 2. It was the first Broadway production of the 2015-2016 season to recoup its initial investment.
After conquering Broadway, the King of the Universe is coming to Los Angeles for the first time ever!

He’s finally arrived to set the record straight… and He’s not holding back!
