St. Martin’s Performing Arts Department announced the cast of its fall production, God’s Favorite. The show will run October 23 through October 25 in the Solomon Theater.
It centers around successful Long Island businessman Joe Benjamin, 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 (who is also a 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.
Rehearsals for the production have already begun. The cast will work with StM’s fantastic team of dedicated theater professionals. The show is directed by Mrs. Meredith Long Dieth, with Ms. Emily Ross as technical director.
Senior Nic Lobrano will serve as assistant director. Maia Christina, eighth grader, will be stage manager, with freshmen Diamond Lewis and Lila Coe as assistant stage managers.
