Shepard bounces back to ‘Hell’

'God' comes to Broadway

Broadway producers Elizabeth I. McCann and Frederick Zollo were there. Liev Schreiber, Ethan Hawke, Gabriel Byrne and Julia Stiles were there. But where was the author at the world premiere of his new play, “The God of Hell”?

Sam Shepard was acting across the Village on stage at the first preview of “A Number” at NYTW. Fortunately, the Caryl Churchill play started at 7 p.m. and lasted a merciful 70 minutes, which meant Shepard and Jessica Lange made it to the second half of “God” to witness Tim Roth do his Abu Ghraib thing with Randy Quaid, Frank Wood and J. Cameron Smith before heading to Ramscale.

In the end, Roth didn’t feel who won the election would change the significance of the political play. “It’s voting for the puppet on the left or the puppet on the right.”
