In a slight twist on the Twitter-account-gets-a-quickly-canceled-sitcom story, @TheTweetOfGod will be getting its own Broadway musical, The Wrap reports. The show is being readied for the stage by Tony nominee Jeffrey Finn, and is scheduled for a run sometime in 2015. Divinely intervened through former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum, @TheTweetOfGod generally complains about the utter stupidity of His creation, though He also sometimes debates Biblical scholarship with Ricky Gervais.
The musical will be adapted from The Last Testament: A Memoir By God, written by Javerbaum with God’s divine intervention. The Last Testament is currently ranked 51,127 by Amazon, compared to another recent religious text, Bill O’Reilly’s The Last Days Of Jesus (currently No. 146 on Amazon).
In a statement, God told the New York Post, “This is the third David with whom I have collaborated professionally. The first wrote 150 magnificent Psalms of praise in My honor. The second left 82 people dead in an inferno in Waco, Texas. I would rank this David somewhere between the first two.”
Neither God nor Javerbaum have commented on whether they think God should be played by a heavily made-up Neil Patrick Harris or Hugh Jackman.
