God's Favorite

Neil Simon’s very funny show loosely based on the Biblical Book of Job. A (rare) devout multimillionaire whose faith is tested encounters every malady and yet stands firm in the midst of collapsing real estate around him - often called Mr. Simon’s most imaginative play. A big hit at ALT 20 years ago and the story begs for REVIVAL!

The production, first produced at the ALT Showplace in the 1980's was the first choice for Director Carol Hodson (who is the Artistic Director for "Curtains Up Theater Company" based in Edwardsville). Carol has appeared at ALT in several outstanding roles and discussion evolved about forming a collaboration between the two Theater groups, bringing combined energies and talents to the 85th Season opener! Indeed, Carol has cast an eclectic group of eight talented actors: Howard Bell, Anthony Tuzzo, Christy Luster, Carol Hodson, Brant McCance, Sarah Chapman-Wiser, Vince Ojeda and Aaron Mermelstein - who hail from Edwardsville, Alton and St. Louis. Gary Wilson serves as Assistant Director for the production.

The 85th Season sees some changes in production runs - plays run for seven performances (no show on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) with evening performances at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm.

Box Office hours (M-F, 10am to 2pm) can make ticket arrangements.

Tickets are just $20 for plays this season.
