An Act of God

An Act of GOd Erik Zavala3

By David Johanssen

Based on the book by former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum, An Act of God was heralded as “like the Bible narrated by Mel Brooks on crack-laced manna.” This production by acclaimed director Alan Jordan explores religion’s influence on society’s most poignant prejudices.

An Act of God stars Erik Zavala as the Creator himself with help from two “Genesistants,” Rodrigo Demian and Sebastian Vallin, the archangels Gabriel and Michael who, together, offer hilarious and painfully accurate commentary on Western society’s shortcomings. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times raves, “It’s an hour and a half of comedy heaven.”

You won’t want to miss this latest fine-tuned work from Alan Jordan, director of earlier Shelter Theater hits such as House, I Am My Own Wife, Diary of a Madman, By the Waters of Babylon, The Tricky Part, and Building the Wall.

Tickets for An Act of God, November 9‒19 at Shelter Theater, are available at the Biblioteca gift shop, Tesoros, and online at All seating is reserved.
