George Street Playhouse

An Act of God

Starring Kathleen Turner
written by David Javerbaum
Directed by David Saint

November 28 – December 23
Following her recent sold-out Broadway run, God arrives in New Brunswick and She looks a lot like Kathleen Turner! Called “deliriously funny” by The New York Times, God takes human form in An Act of God and doesn’t hold back about what she’s seen and heard. In this hilarious comedy God, along with two archangels, answer many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. Turner, an Academy Award® nominee, Tony® Award nominee, and multi- Golden Globe winner, has appeared in nearly three dozen films including The War of the Roses, Prizzi’s Honor (Golden Globe winner), Romancing the Stone, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
