ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI— APRIL 25, 2022 — STLFringe PRESENTS... for PRIDE, An Act of God by David Javerbaum for your post-pandemic theatrical pleasure.

THE STORY: The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight. After many millennia, and in just 90 minutes, God (assisted by His devoted angels) answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation.

THE TEAM: This post-pandemic premiere stars President and Artistic Director of St Lou Fringe, Matthew R. Kerns, MFA, and St. Louis cabaret legend, Ken Haller MD. An Act of God is collaboration with Myriad Productions and Directed by Jordan and Rich Matt-Zeitler.

Kerns said of the upcoming work, "I am proud to make my return to the stage creating theatre magic with members of my LGBTQIA+ family. This hilarious show celebrates our history, courage, and love, and this pride season St Lou Fringe is excited to share David Javerbaum's amazing script, An Act of God."

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SHOW:

“Javerbaum’s radical rewrite of the Ten Commandments—the evening is structured around God’s introduction of revised laws—is clever and even refreshingly positive, insisting on the separation of church and state and encouraging us to believe in ourselves, not some elderly white guy in the sky.” —Time Out (New York).

“The jokes keep landing—nearly one per sentence—and…they are always smart. But Javerbaum [is] too theatrically savvy to leave it at that. Another note, slowly introduced among the zingers and rim shots, eventually becomes dominant, and this one, while still funny, is darker and potentially more theologically challenging than mere spoofs of Bible stories.” —NY Magazine.

St Lou Fringe has produced over 400 multidisciplinary works of art created by independent artists that have grown into productions locally, regionally, and nationally, including Off-Broadway.
