I could say that the return engagement of An Act of God, now with Sean Hayes, is a revelation, a miraculous epiphany or similar “religious” experience. Truth to tell, I was already a believer. I thoroughly enjoyed David Javerbaum’s theological satire last summer when it starred Jim Parsons, and I could watch Hayes’s bratty-campy shtick all night. So what if Hayes and his helpful angels Gabriel and Michael (James Gleason, David Josefsberg) are preaching to the choir? Preach out, Sean!

------TimeOut NY
Mr. Javerbaum’s wit, one is tempted to say, is almost as infinite as God’s wisdom. There’s a good gag a minute, maybe more, in this 90-minute show. And in Mr. Hayes, God has a delightful infinite-wisdom delivery system. His God is by turns comically admonishing, affectionate and just occasionally petulant, as who would not be when his carefully laid plans have resulted in, well, the world in its endless imperfection.

-----New York Times
The set-up of Javerbaum’s effective satire, directed by Joe Mantello, has the creator of the universe taking us through an all new edgy and transgressive set of commandments, in “Family Feud” style: “Thou shalt not tell others whom to fornicate” is one.“God” explains that he’s commandeered Hayes’ body, and Hayes doesn’t know he’s here (“So why Sean Hayes?” asks this God. “I’ve been a fan of his since ‘Will and Grace.’ That Cher episode?”). We rapidly ascertain that God’s views on morality are aligned with those of the left-leaning urbanites most likely to have shelled out for a ticket.
