Faith tested in ‘God’s 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 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 the hilarious comedy “God’s Favorite,” coming to Sutter Street Theatre.
The Folsom production is directed by Stephen & Janelle Kauffman.
“God’s Favorite” opens at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, and continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through Dec 1 at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter St. in Folsom.
