Vex 21st season begins with Neil Simon comedy

The Sheldon Vexler Theatre’s 21st season begins in August with Neil Simon’s comedy, God’s Favorite.

Successful Long Island businessman, Joe Benjamin, is 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 G-d (and a compulsive film buff) with a mission: to 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.

The show will run in August and September with exact dates, casting, tickets and additional information to be announced soon.
