Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope Opens Season with Comedy ‘An Act of God’

Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope will open its 2018 season with the hilarious Broadway comedy “An Act of God.” Directed by Tracy Brigden, the show runs from May 18 to June 16.

Returning to earth, God has chosen to take the form of acclaimed New York actor Harry Bouvy. He is joined onstage by two archangels, Ashley D. Kelley as Michael and Joe Kinosian as Gabriel, and gifts humanity with an entirely new set of Ten Commandments. Written by 13-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum (“The Daily Show”), “An Act of God” is an exceptionally witty comedy that delivers a new meaning to the phrase “divine intervention,” according to BCP.

Bouvy most recently played Dr. Dillamond in the national tour of “Wicked,” and has played Sir Robin in “Spamalot,” Carmen Ghia in “The Producers,” and Dr. Chilton in the off-Broadway “Silence! The Musical.”

Kelley most recently starred in the title role in “Bella: An American Tall Tale” at Playwrights Horizons, and has appeared on “Marvel’s Luke Cage” (Netflix), and in a recurring arc in the same network’s new show, “Insatiable.” Kinosian returns to the Playhouse having previously appeared in “Murder for Two: Holiday Edition” and “The Nerd.” He co-wrote “Murder for Two” with writing partner Kellen Blair, and has performed the show more than 600 times.

“An Act of God” is based on David Javerbaum’s 2011 book, “The Last Testament: A Memoir by God,” and his Twitter account @TheTweetofGod, which had more than two million followers before he discontinued the feed in 2016. Aside from his Emmys, he’s received a Grammy Award and three Peabody Awards for his work on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Javerbaum is the co-creator of the Netflix sitcom “Disjointed,” starring Kathy Bates, and worked on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “The Colbert Report.”

Tickets to “An Act of God” are on sale now, and are available online.
