AN ACT OF GOD is based on former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaums 2011 book that was heralded as like the Bible, if the Bible were narrated by Mel Brooks on crack-laced manna.
An Act of God features Erik Zavala as the Creator himself with a little help from two Genesistants, Rodrigo Demian and Sebastian Vallin, the archangels Gabriel and Michael. The production explores religions influence on some of societys most poignant tragedies, like alleged divinely inspired homicides and prejudices against communities that dont conform to the heteronormative mold. As the action unfolds, Zavala reveals a new set of 10 commandments that reflects a 21st-century outlook, emphasizing LGBTQ rights, the United States shortcomings, the absurdity of prayer, and the origins of a post-God state.
The playwright, David Javerbaum has won 13 Emmys, 11 at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Currently a producer of The Late Late Show With James Corden, Mr. Javerbaum wrote for The Harvard Lampoon as an undergraduate, and then for The Onion, Late Show With David Letterman, and the Jon Stewart Daily Show where he wound up as head writer and executive producer.
