The role of God has been played by a number of actors — most notably George Burns in the series of "Oh God" movies in the 1970s and '80s, and Morgan Freeman in a lot of others. An actress, though? That’s been much harder to come by.

Arizona Theatre Company’s current production of the Broadway hit "An Act of God" features Paige Davis, best known for "Trading Spaces" on TLC, playing the title role.

We spoke with Davis and the director of the production, four-time Oscar-nominee Marsha Mason, on stage at the Herberger Theater Center to talk about portraying and directing God.
