Gary Busey To Play God In Off Broadway Musical ‘Only Human’ This Fall

Gary Busey will play God in new pop-rock musical Only Human opening Off Broadway this fall, producers announced today.

The musical, with a book by Jess Carson, music and lyrics by Mike Squillante and based on a story by Jesse Murphy and Squillante, will have its world premiere at Off Broadway’s Theatre at St. Clements. Previews begin October 8, with an opening night on October 21. The limited engagement runs through January 5, 2020.

“God is everything love is, and that love becomes the beginning of blessings and miracles,” Busey said in a statement. “Playing this role of God is easy because I’m not acting, I’m just believing. You come see it and you’ll believe it too.”

Busey did a two-week stint in Off Broadway’s murder mystery Perfect Crime in 2016, but Only Human will mark his first musical.

The production will be choreographed by Josue Jasmin and directed by NJ Agwuna.
