God Will Inhabit the Body of Kathleen Turner at George Street Playhouse
David Javerbaum's An Act of God will open at the Jersey theater this winter.
Oscar and two-time Tony nominee Kathleen Turner is set to play God in the George Street Playhouse production of An Act of God, directed by GSP artistic director David Saint. Performances of An Act of God begin on November 28 and continue through December 23.
Turner has appeared in nearly three dozen films, including The War of the Roses, Prizzi's Honor (Golden Globe winner), Romancing the Stone, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Marley and Me, Peggy Sue Got Married (Academy Award nomination), among others. On Broadway, she's earned Tony Award nominations for her performances in Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? She also starred as Mrs. Robinson in the Broadway and West End productions of The Graduate.
Written by 13-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum (based on his book The Last Testament: A Memoir by God and his popular Twitter feed), An Act of God made its Broadway debut with Jim Parsons as God and returned to Broadway in 2016 starring Sean Hayes. In the show, God, along with two archangels, answer many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. Casting of the archangels will be announced shortly.
