The Tony-nominated show will play its last performance at the Booth Theatre in early January, ahead of its London run at the Vaudeville Theatre, beginning Feb. 5.

Tyrone is bound for London.

Hand to God — the dark comedy about a confused Christian teenager in Texas whose life is taken over by a foul-mouthed Satanic sock puppet — is leaving Broadway to transfer to the West End, producer Kevin McCollum has announced.

The Tony-nominated show, penned by Robert Askins and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, will play its last performance at the Booth Theatre on Jan. 3, ahead of its London run at the Vaudeville Theatre, beginning Feb. 5.

The Broadway production — which stars Steven Boyer, Sarah Stiles, Geneva Carr, Marc Kudisch and Michael Oberholtzer — will have enjoyed a nine-month run after opening to strong reviews and receiving five Tony nominations, though weekly grosses have meandered to average under $300,000. Cumulative box office to date is $8.2 million.

Casting for the London run will be announced at a later date.
