We are The Creator. We made the heavens and the earth. We gave you free will. That was clearly a mistake. We have returned to apologize, but not as you expect. In the past, only the lucky few have spoken to Us directly. Prophets. Chosen ones. The occasional virgin. But this year, it's your turn! For Fringe 2018, The Creator has rented Studio/Stage to bring multiple reflections of Itself directly to you! You will experience the opportunity to interact with The Creator and Its Reflections throughout the theater in this Divine Immersive Encounter. You will never look at “God” the same way again. “God: The Apologies Tour” is created by Erik Blair and produced by They Played Productions, the team behind last year's Fringe hit “Nothing Bad: A Werewolf Rock Musical”.

Tickets: $20

NOTE: Because this is an immersive production, we want audiences to have some advisories to better understand what they are likely to experience:

* There may be Light to Moderate touching of audience members (think of the range from handshakes to marking a forehead)

* The show will have moments that touch on Death, Religious Beliefs and Religion in general.

* As the audience will be given the opportunity to move multiple times through the performance space, the ability to walk through hallways and doors is preferable—but not a requirement to experience the show.

"Part comedy, part immersive piece, part philosophical discussion, this play from They Played Productions boldly takes on the concept of portraying the un-portray-able in a fashion everyone can relate to on some level."

"There's a lot of immersive storytelling in Fringe this year, but only one offers (and even succeeds!) in giving you the answers to all of your questions."

"An interesting, non judgmental, and humane portrayal of the creator. I especially liked the focus on free will. I was also impressed with the level of research that must have gone into each portrayal. Even when audience members posed "trick" questions, the creators' responses were calm, reasoned, and in character. A show that even an atheist (like myself) could enjoy!"

"This portrayal of God drips with such sincerity it is difficult not to be won over. Utilizing immersive, freeform staging, Erik Blair creates an engaging presence that is authoritative yet engaging, and warm enough never to feel commanding. I saw the show twice, and made different choices that always me to experience the show differently. Each actor has their own special moment, and shines when the spotlight is on them."

"I'm not a religion fiend. I don't want no one preachin' at me about nothin'. So you best LISTEN UP when I tell you GO SEE THIS SHOW. You hear me? GO SEE IT. Funny. Cool. Intense. Amusing. This ain't your parents God. This one ain't even just one God. It's multiple, different but still like one in a mix both woke AND salty. Depends on which God you get. Did I mention you get to CHOOSE which God you want? That's unique AF--like converting multiple times at once! Anyone missing this thing misses best Fringe show I've danced through so far!"

"Coming from a Catholic high-school background, but currently identifying as a non-believer, I found God: The Apologies Tour refreshing and peaceful. The fears and uncertainties that humanity faces on a daily basis are brought to the forefront, finessed and made relatable to current, everyday life. Updating antiquated ideas for modern audiences and infusing them with humor and love, Blair and his cast provide engaging versions of the Creator that I can definitely get behind. God: The Apologies Tour is a beautifully honest and rewarding exploration of free will and interacting with the divine."

"Egalitarian religious philosophy and pop humor mingle in the form of a collection of experiences with various aspects of the Supreme Being. It's a concept that probably shouldn't work, yet does."

"Such an amazing immersive show! Every experience will be a little different in the most magical way. You hear from, and have conversations with, the creator. So heartfelt and true, very funny, and so very very human. You leave feeling so good!"

"The show was thought provoking in the way it emphasized how human beings have an effect on the divine and mankind creating this circular view of connection and causality. There appeared to be some Neil Gaiman influences that could have been expanded on and developed further but were a nice easter egg for American Godsfans."

"More inspiring than any given church service! If church were like this, I would drag my tired ass outta bed every Sunday without fail! Erik Blair portrays a God that truly loves ALL His children!"

"Honestly, while somewhat loosely structured and full of improv, this was one of the strongest Fringe shows I have seen thus far, and one I very much enjoyed. They Played Productions have created something fun out of an incredibly simple concept."
