"God's Favorite" Opens at Desiderio's

Live, in person, professional theater returns. Neil Simon's 1974 comic take on the biblical book of Job resonates with specific significance as we begin to emerge from a pandemic. Originally directed for Broadway by Buffalo's Michael Bennett, David Marciniak and Jimmy Janowski take on roles originated by Charles Nelson Reilly and Vincent Gardenia at Desiderio's Dinner Theatre, located in Cheektowaga at Bobby J's Italian American Grille. Here are some Opening Shots!
