    “An Act of God,” the comedy based on David Javerbaum’s @TheTweetOfGod Twitter account and corresponding book, will return to Broadway this spring for a limited run -- this time with “Will & Grace” star Sean Hayes in the title role.

    The 14-week engagement begins May 28 and ends Sept. 4, with an opening night set for June 6 at the Booth Theatre.

    Directed by Joe Mantello (“Blackbird,” “The Humans”), “An Act of God” premiered on Broadway last season to critical raves, starring “The Big Bang Theory” actor Jim Parsons. The production then moved to Los Angeles, with Hayes replacing Parsons, and San Francisco, where it’s currently playing at the Golden Gate Theatre.

    The 90-minute play features a conversation with God, where he and two of angels provide an additional set of commandments. (Casting for the angels is expected to be announced soon).

    “I can’t wait to return to the Great White Way this summer,” “God” said in a statement. “I’m particularly excited to spend 14-weeks at the Booth Theater, because when you think about good things happening in a theater, the name you think of is ‘Booth’!”
