|Description:||Asbury Memorial Theatre presents Neil Simon’s comedy God's Favorite, loosely based on the Biblical Book of Job. It was produced on Broadway in 1974 and is set at a Long Island mansion. The household consists of a pious, God-fearing tycoon named Joe Benjamin and his family: a long-suffering wife, Rose, a prodigal son, David, a pair of kooky twins, Ben and Sarah, and the maid and butler, Mady and Morris. One night a messenger from God, Sidney Lipton, arrives, and, as in the biblical story, goes through all manner of temptations to get Joe Benjamin to renounce God. When he refuses, he is visited by all the afflictions imaginable. He stands firm and the messenger has to admit defeat. // Performance dates for God’s Favorite will be Nov. 9, 10, 16, and 17 at 7:30 PM and Nov. 11 and 18 at 3:00 PM at Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church, 1008 East Henry Street in downtown Savannah. Tickets are $10 general admission at the door. We will accept cash, checks and MC/VISA for payment.
