'An Act of God' Broadway Review: Jim Parsons Is Divinely Funny

'An Act of God' Broadway Review: Jim Parsons Is Divinely Funny
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
BROADWAY REVIEW

“Yea, I have grown weary of the Ten Commandments in exactly the same way that Don McLean has grown weary of ‘American Pie’,” says the Almighty in His current visit to Broadway in “An Act of God.”

So God presents a new and improved set of rules to the flock that gathers at Studio 54, where He has taken on the endearingly snarky guise of “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons in order not to shock and awe them so awfully.

While such casting is perfect and the notion for this show is nifty, writer David Javerbaum doesn’t make nearly so much of these assets as might be hoped. (Gosh, where’s Mark Twain when you need him?)
