Summary: 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.
Directors Glen Turton, Lesley Warren, Mark Brown and the cast of God’s Favorite have worked hard to bring this show to life. All performances for God’s Favorite are free and any donations received go to the Spotlight Program to continue funding more projects both on and off the stage.
