It’s three times a charm for Jim Parsons on Broadway.

The Big Bang Theory star will return to New York City to star in the comedy An Act of God, which begins previews on May 5 and officially opens May 28.

Parsons, 41, will play God in the play written by @TheTweetOfGod curator David Javerbaum, who is also an Emmy-winning head writer and executive producer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

A release about the show promises that God will “reveal the mysteries of the Bible and answer some of the greatest existential questions that plague mankind.”

Director Joe Mantello previously starred with Parsons in the award-winning 2011 production of The Normal Heart. Both men also appeared in Ryan Murphy’s Golden Globe-nominated HBO adaptation.

Parsons joins a number of TV stars on Broadway this spring, including Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson in the drama Constellations, Larry David and Rosie Perez in David’s forthcoming comedy Fish in the Dark and How to Get Away with Murder’s Conrad Ricamora in the upcoming revival of Rogers + Hammerstein’s The King and I.

An Act of God opens in limited engagement on May 28 at Studio 54 in New York City.
