Could God of Carnage Win The 2009 Tony Award for Best Play?

What do you think would happen when two sets of parents get together to have a meeting about their own children not getting along? Will it go smoothly or will there be some bad behavior of their own?

I am pleased to tell you that a new play is in previews right now at the Jacobs Theater in New York City. It is called God of Carnage, billed as a "comedy of manners without the manners". Written by Yasmina Reza, this show recently finished a sold-out run in London. The word of mouth in New York after a week's worth of preview performances sounds very strong indeed.

God of Carnage will officially open to New York critic's reviews on Sunday March 22, 2009. The reviews from London critic's were very positive and I have even heard someone I work with say God of Carnage might even win the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.

God of Carnage has an amazing All-Star cast. Can you imagine James Gandalfini (The Sopranos), Jeff Daniels (Terms of Endearment, Dumb and Dumber), Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River, First Wives Club) and Hope Davis (Arlington Road), all on a Broadway stage together? I am planning on seeing this show in the next week or so. Really, I can't wait. To me, there's something special when you get to witness "movie stars" performing "live" on a Broadway stage.

This new play is currently performing on a Tuesday through Sunday schedule with evening shows at 8pm and a Wednesday and Saturday afternoon performance at 2pm with Sunday matinee at 3pm. Right after opening night on Sunday March 22, 2009, Tuesday evening's will start earlier at 7pm. The earlier starting time is great for some younger theater-goers and those folks that have earlier workdays the following day. The theater has been offering earlier Tuesday evenings for several years now which does allot in helping to introduce many folks to theater that might not venture out on a weeknight.

God of Carnage tickets with special discounts through April 9, 2009 along with the promise of "top price seating" are available by calling Applause Theater Service, an officially licensed ticket agency for the show. It is unlikely that the discount will be available if the show opens to rave reviews that some anticipate. So we invite you to purchase seats now if you think this show is a good fit for you.
