God is coming to Venice!
Based on a satirical book and twitter account by former “Daily Show” writer David Javerbaum, An Act of God is an irreverently witty conversation with God in which the almighty reveals secrets of the Bible, updates the ten commandments, and answers some of humankind’s greatest existential questions.
An award-winning actor, director and choreographer, Brad’s work has been seen across the United States and Canada. He holds a B.F.A. from the University of Oklahoma and served as assistant director to Broadway directors Fran Soeder and Joe Layton. He has been seen in a number of national theatre tours and national commercials. He is thrilled to call Venice Theatre “home” and to have the privilege of guiding the next generation of young actors to the stage.
