In an era where seemingly everything from “Roseanne” to “Will and Grace” has received a reboot, God also has decided to take a fresh look at one of his greatest cultural achievements, The Ten Commandments, in the Broadway comedy, “An Act of God.”

Directed by Tracy Brigden, the comedy runs at Bucks County Playhouse May 18 to June 16. The official opening night performance is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19. The post-show talkback is May 22.

Returning to earth, the Supreme Being has chosen to take the form of New York actor Harry Bouvy. He is joined onstage by two archangels, Ashley D. Kelley as Michael and Joe Kinosian as Gabriel.

Written by 13-time Emmy Award winner David Javerbaum (“The Daily Show”), “An Act of God” is delivers a new meaning to the phrase “divine intervention.”

Bouvy most recently played Dr. Dillamond in the national tour of “Wicked.” He played Sir Robin in “Spamalot” and Carmen Ghia in “The Producers.”

Kelley most recently starred in the title role in “Bella: An American Tall Tale” at Playwrights Horizons. She has appeared on “Marvel’s Luke Cage” and on “Insatiable,” both on Netflix.

Kinosian returns to the Playhouse having appeared in “Murder for Two: Holiday Edition” and “The Nerd.” Kinosian co-wrote “Murder for Two” with Kellen Blair.
