This was so good. It is wildly funny, controversial, and thought-provoking, Joshua Thomas leaves everything on the stage. Highly recommend.... full review

Great show that makes one laugh and ponder. It causes a different reaction in everyone because of its theme and the concepts we have about a god. ... full review

Not sure what to say about this production beyond I admired the artist. Really gave a beautiful performance and was fully committed to the performance. The material itself is a deep and probing meditation. Perhaps it is a moment at which the character is questioning the meaning of his life and the possibility of what magic is and what may or may not be possible. What may or may not be manifested into existence. This play is heady. You will have to work a bit to maintain pace with is as there is no glaring narrative hook in the classic story line structure, sense. Check it out. See what the craft of acting is all about. Don't be afraid to think. ... full review

Amazing characterization by a super committed actor. It was surreal and humorous. I loved Joshua's strong voice and his absurd view of everything. It's obvious that he is a skilled and experienced actor. It would be incredible to see him do Shakespeare. ... full review

Let there be.... Not toast! I've never seen a show showing what it's like being a God. I especially appreciate this sincere and humorous take on being one that no longer has any followers. There've been millions you know. It's been done before trying to make a higher power relatable, but never like this. And I like it. ... full review

Was very entertained. The personification of a God that has lost all his followers begs the question of what really is his purpose? As he explains with his beautiful writing why bad things happen and what the intent is of a God of one's own understanding is, we are sent on a thought provoking journey that I think would raise questions among even greatest of spiritual believers. It's done in a very entertaining way with characters that are humorous and sensitive and vulnerable in a way that as an audience member, I was able to find great empathy. Incredibly acted and very well written. Thank you for the ride!... full review
