NEW YORK  — Former "Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes is coming back to Broadway as a guy with plenty of will and grace. Hayes will play God in a stage adaptation of the humor book "The Last Testament: A Memoir by God" on Broadway. The play, called "An Act of God," is adapted by its author, David Javerbaum.

Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, who also helmed "Wicked," will direct the show, which begins performances in May at the Booth Theatre. Javerbaum is the Emmy Award-winning former head writer and executive producer of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Hayes, who played the role in Los Angeles and San Francisco, inherited the role from "The Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons, who played the role last summer on Broadway.
