The Stars Arrive on Broadway Tonight as "Impressionism" and "God of Carnage" Begin Previews 2/28!

It's a cavalcade of stars on Broadway right now! If you enjoy seeing famous celebrities live on stage, now's the time to catch a bunch with Applause Theatre Service, beginning with these two exciting new shows!

The American premiere of Yasmina Reza's "God of Carnage", starring Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden, begins previews at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre Feb. 28. Tony nominee Matthew Warchus, who also staged Reza's Art and Life (x) 3 on Broadway, directs the comedy, which will officially opens March 22. Playwright Christopher Hampton translated the Olivier Award-nominated work, which concluded its successful London run last summer, also under the direction of Warchus.
God of Carnage, according to press notes, "is a comedy of manners without the manners. The play deals with the aftermath of a playground altercation between two boys and what happens when their parents meet to talk about it."

Also Tony Award winners Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons return to Broadway Feb. 28 with the 8 PM first preview of the new American play, "Impressionism", by Michael Jacobs, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Directed by Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Coast of Utopia), Impressionism — the story of an international photojournalist and a New York gallery owner "who discover each other and also that there might be an art to repairing broken lives" — will open on March 12. This is an 18-week limited engagement. The cast also features four-time Academy Award nominee Marsha Mason (Steel Magnolias, Night of the Iguana), Hadley Delany, Tony nominee André De Shields (The Full Monty, Play On!), Michael T. Weiss (TV's "The Pretender"), Aaron Lazar (Les Misérables, Tale of Two Cities) and Margarita Levieva.
