God's Favorite
10 Performances March 13-28, 2015
Successful Long Island businessman Joe Benjamin is a modern-day
'Job' with a demanding wife, ungrateful children and wise-cracking
household employees. Just when it seems things couldn't get any worse,
he is visited by Sidney Lipton, a.k.a. A Messenger from God (and
compulsive film buff) with a mission: test Joe's faith and report back to
"the Boss". The jokes and Tests of Faith fly fast and furious as Neil
Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious
comedy.

"Awesomely funny...The work of a man of vision. It'll make you laugh out
loud." - New York Daily News

"His jokes have a kind of hilarious deadpan ecstasy and, even better, are
taken from life." - The New York Times  10 Performances March 13-28,
2015.  Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays 8pm, Sundays 2pm, Dinner show
