‘An Act of God,’ Based on a David Javerbaum Book, Gears Up for Broadway

Producer Jeffrey Finn (“Seminar,” “Scandalous,” “Dead Accounts”) will shepherd new play “An Act of God” to Broadway, where the show — based on David Javerbaum’s book “The Last Testament: A Memoir By God” — aims to open in 2015.

Creative team for the stage incarnation has not yet been set, with an actor still to be cast in the role of God.

The 2011 book was billed as God’s celebrity autobiography, written by God as transcribed by Javerbaum, the former head writer and exec producer of “The Daily Show with John Stewart.” The co-author of “America: The Book” and “Earth: The Book,” Javerbaum also co-wrote the score to 2008  tuner “Cry-Baby,” although more recently has attracted attention on Broadway for the songs he has written for Neil Patrick Harris when he hosted the Tony Awards, including the ditty “Broadway Is Not Just for Gays Anymore.”

An exact production timeline for “Act of God” has not yet been confirmed.
