God of Marz
Created by Rachel A. Shaw
Directed and Choreographed by Glenn Girón
Original Music Composed by Mark Lazeski
312 West 36th Street, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10018
Get ready for a journey to the “red planet” in this sexy, new comedy with a psychedelic twist. When two astronauts crash land on Mars, they discover life, and it’s not what we thought. Amid a host of delightfully politically-incorrect supernatural and iconic characters, the travelers attempt a perilous escape. A play full of laughs, original music, burlesque, dance and aerial arts, God of Marz is a sizzling sci-fi world all its own.
“God of Marz has become a commentary on human pride, vanity, feminism and our need to feel important because I think big egos (mine included) are funny,” stated playwright Rachel Shaw. “Setting the play in a space world with kooky characters, nightclub-style lighting and an original soundtrack inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” reflects the absurdity of today’s egocentric ideologies. It’s a wild ride!”

Pup's Books - Ewing Reviewing: GOD OF MARZ
"Laura Leigh Carroll, who played God, benefitted from some of the best dialogue in the play. Ms. Carroll was a hoot, milking every line for its comic elements. She was entirely human, reminding us that we were supposed to have been created in Her/His image."

Big Broadway World Review: The Funky Reality of Shaw's GOD OF MARZ
"Shaw's play deduces what is truth and what is fiction, then asks us to "consider" what is right or wrong when presented by the ultimate authority. This authority, by the way, is someone's Jewish aunt reminiscent of Barbra Streisand (LOVE IT). God (Laura Leigh Carroll) is a hoot - a charismatic, free spirit who speaks her mind and enjoys her liquor over an episode of The Kardashians."

".....the Jeff Goldblum-esque God (Laura Leigh Carroll) and the hilariously gay Jesus (Adam Chisnall), both of whom should be given their own play. "
