About the show:
The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight. After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (assisted by His devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation, such as: why did He decide to create the universe, which sports team does God choose when they all pray to Him for a win, and what does He think of Kanye West? From the multi Emmy Award-winning head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and creator of Twitter’s massively followed @TheTweetOfGod, this hit comedy treats audiences to a hilarious side of divinity unlike any other.
We are looking to cast the following divine roles:
GABRIEL— Angel—spends most of show onstage. Can be any age/gender/ethnicity
MICHAEL— Angel--roams the audience for most of the show. Improvisational skills a
plus, but not a requirement. Can be any age/gender/ethnicity
GOD— All Supreme Being who “takes over” the body of an ordinary actor for the
duration of the show. Has the bulk of lines. Must be able to memorize huge chunks of
dialogue. Singing skills a plus. Can be any age/gender/ethnicity
