Jim Parsons Takes on the Kardashians, Kanye West & More in New Broadway Show
By Stacy Lambe
With Big Bang Theory
on hiatus for the summer, Jim Parsons returns to New York City to star in the
one-man show, An Act of God, for a
limited run on Broadway.
The new play -- based on the Twitter account, @TheTweetofGod -- sees Parsons, as God
appearing in human form as the actor Jim Parsons, recounting the Lord’s journey
and introducing 10 new commandments.
Written by David Javerbaum, the Emmy-winning comedy writer
behind the Twitter account and current producer of The Late Late Show with James Corden, the show offers up plenty of
laughs as Parsons delivers a sermon mixed with faith, politics, jokes,
groaners, and plenty of pop culture references.
And what’s a good sermon without a few knocks at Hollywood
and entertainment culture?! Among those who get a taste of God’s sarcastic
interpretation of today’s state of affairs are the Kardashians and Kanye West.
