Reviews"A deeply satisfying, superbly acted exploration of personal values, honesty, integrity and accommodation within relationships, ‘The God Game’ is the sort of new work that theater fans long to see… The play, by Suzanne Bradbeer, feels very much of the moment, contemporary and relevant in the best ways, and yet it also addresses eternal questions.” – Times-Union
“[The God Game] tells a thoughtful story in a totally engaging manner. It has enough drama to keep you interested during its two hour running time but it doesn’t depend on the scandal of the moment to drive the story….A strong story, excellent individual acting and sensitive direction by Kristen Coury make this a special production.” – The Troy Record
“The God Game is Thrilling and Compelling at The Rep! On one level, this is a political drama with a dark sense of humor…On a deeper, more captivating level this show is an intimate piece that unravels as the truth of three friends comes to light… You’ll be on the edge of your seat guessing until the very last moment of the show.” – Albany CVB
“…this is truly a stunning work, and about such timely topics.” – The Daily Gazette
