NEW YORK (AP) - Someone pretty critic-proof is coming to Broadway: The Almighty.

Producer Jeffrey Finn on Wednesday said he hopes to mount a stage adaptation of the humor book “The Last Testament: A Memoir by God” on Broadway by 2015. The play, called “An Act of God,” will be adapted by author, David Javerbaum, and star, well, God.

A timetable, cast and creative team details will be announced later.

Javerbaum is the former head writer and executive producer of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” He also co-wrote the score to 2008 musical “Cry-Baby” and songs for the Tony Awards hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, including the tune “Broadway is Not Just for Gays Anymore.”

“The Last Testament: A Memoir by God” was billed as God’s celebrity autobiography.

Finn has produced “Seminar,” ”Scandalous,” ”Dead Accounts” and currently Will Eno’s play “The Realistic Joneses.”

The new play joins a long list of religious-themed works recently on Broadway, including “The Book of Mormon,” ”Sister Act,” ”Grace,” ”Scandalous,” ”Leap of Faith,” ”The Testament of Mary,” ”Godspell” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
