Had a chance to see the hit comedy play Good God A’ Mighty, a Lolita Snipes production at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta. It was my first visit to the Playhouse and fell in love with the intimate setting. The stage was lit and set up as a church which told me I was in for much laughter and it DID NOT disappoint! The cast was funny and delightful… a must see!
This wonderful play stars Tony Award winning actress and legendary singer Melba Moore and nationally known comedians Just June and Dante Carter. It takes a comical look into African-American church culture when a vibrant young Pastor from New York moves down south to take over an old style church. The zany antics are non-stop when two church mothers fall in love with him while sparks fly as the other members fight to keep their old traditions intact. Trouble and fun ensue when the bombastic choir director tries to run him out of the “The Big Easy” and back to the “The Big Apple!” Amidst the laughter, the story weaves the universal themes of love, relationships, and what it means to truly belong to a community. Sometimes you find inspiration in the most unexpected places and realize…God really does have a sense of humor. The play continues at the 14th Street Playhouse until Feb 24.
