    NEIL SIMON COMEDY “GOD’S FAVORITE”
    The Newtowne Players will present Neil Simon’s comedy “God’s Favorite,”
    starting Friday, April 6 through Sunday, April 22 at Three Notch Theatre, 21744 South
    Coral Drive, Lexington Park, MD 20653.
    Curtain times are 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.
    Tickets may be purchased online at www.newtowneplayers.org. Reservations may be

    “God’s Favorite” is based on the Biblical story of Job, and centers on Joe
    Benjamin, a carboard box magnate who has everything: a flourishing business, loving
    wife, three children, and loyal servants. He attributes all his good fortune to God’s will,
    and lives his life as a generous and devout servant of God. Then one midnight, who
    appears into all this but a near-sighted movie buff named Sidney Lipton, a messenger
    from God who informs Joe that God has named Joe to be His favorite person, which has
    prompted Satan to bet that he can make Joe’s life so miserable that Joe will renounce
    God.

      wife, three children, and loyal servants. He attributes all his good fortune to God’s will,
      and lives his life as a generous and devout servant of God. Then one midnight, who
      appears into all this but a near-sighted movie buff named Sidney Lipton, a messenger
      from God who informs Joe that God has named Joe to be His favorite person, which has
      prompted Satan to bet that he can make Joe’s life so miserable that Joe will renounce
      God.

    “God’s Favorite” is based on the Biblical story of Job, and centers on Joe
    Benjamin, a carboard box magnate who has everything: a flourishing business, loving
    wife, three children, and loyal servants. He attributes all his good fortune to God’s will,
    and lives his life as a generous and devout servant of God. Then one midnight, who
    appears into all this but a near-sighted movie buff named Sidney Lipton, a messenger
    from God who informs Joe that God has named Joe to be His favorite person, which has
    prompted Satan to bet that he can make Joe’s life so miserable that Joe will renounce
    God.

    “God’s Favorite” is based on the Biblical story of Job, and centers on Joe
    Benjamin, a carboard box magnate who has everything: a flourishing business, loving
    wife, three children, and loyal servants. He attributes all his good fortune to God’s will,
    and lives his life as a generous and devout servant of God. Then one midnight, who
    appears into all this but a near-sighted movie buff named Sidney Lipton, a messenger
    from God who informs Joe that God has named Joe to be His favorite person, which has
    prompted Satan to bet that he can make Joe’s life so miserable that Joe will renounce
    God.
