Kathleen Turner in An Act of God
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 by Emmy Award-winner David Javerbaum ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), God, along with two archangels (Stephen DeRosa and Jim Walton), answer many of the deepest (and not so deep) questions that have plagued mankind since Creation.

An Iraq war hero’s perfect life starts to unravel when a fellow veteran seeking justice shows up threatening to expose a hidden past. From the author of last season’s American Son, this probing drama shines a light on how America honors its veterans, the corrupting effect of awards and commendations, and questions what it truly means to be a hero. "American Hero" joins "American Son" and a yet-to-be titled new work to create a trilogy of plays that explore American injustice. "American Hero" is the recipient of the Steinberg Award Citation from the American Theatre Critics Association. (Jan. 30 - Feb. 25, 2018) Learn More
