“God’s Favorite” is Neil Simon’s New York-style take on the Biblical trials of Job; this time in the person of businessman Joe Benjamin. Joe (Scott “Smitty” Smith) is a simple man who is surrounded by the trappings of his success: wife, children, home and money. When he is visited by a messenger from God (Kelly Smith), he is told that all will be lost unless he renounces God.
In addition to the husband and wife team of Smith’s at the top of the bill, the cast features Kris Bates, Merriah Currao, Kelly Stuper, Elizabeth McManus, Lori Holm-Cipollini, and John Zimmerman. The play is being produced by Lisa Belfiore-Davis and directed by Richard McCarty.
