Hand to God, the hit off-Broadway dark comedy that played runs at Ensemble Studio Theatre and MCC Theater's Lucille Lortel Theatre, opens tonight at Broadway's Booth Theatre. Previews began March 12.

Written by Robert Askins and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, Hand to God tells the story of Jason, a young member of the Christian Puppet Ministry in Cypress, Texas, whose life is thrown into chaos when Tyrone, his hand puppet, takes on a dangerous personality of his own.

The complete MCC Theater cast, made up of Steven Boyer as Jason and Tyrone, Geneva Carr as Margery, Marc Kudisch as Pastor Greg, Sarah Stiles as Jessica, and Michael Oberholtzer as Timmy, has moved to Broadway.
