Test Your Faith with Neil Simonís Godís Favorite at Arts Barn Theater
In partnership with Montgomery Playhouse, the Arts Barn presents Neil Simon’s God’s Favorite. The show runs November 8 through 24, 2013, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Admission is $16, $14 for City of Gaithersburg residents.
Loosely based on the Book of Job, the jokes and “tests of faith” fly fast and furious as Simon spins a contemporary morality tale with Godís Favorite. 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 could not get any worse, he is visited by a “messenger from God” whose mission is to test Joe’s faith and report back to “the Boss.”
“Awesomely funny...The work of a man of vision. It’ll make you laugh out loud,” says the New York Daily News.
The Arts Barn, Gaithersburg’s premier cultural arts facility, is located at 311 Kent Square Road, Gaithersburg. For more information and tickets call 301-258-6394 or visit online at www.gaithersburgmd.gov/theater.
