God of Carnage on Broadway Welcomes a New Cast

Here's some great news I hope you find helpful regarding God of Carnage playing on Broadway in New York City. On Sunday, November 15, 2009 it will be the last performance with star cast members James Gandolfini, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis and Marcia Gay Harden. I saw the show several months ago and found it very funny. Most of you know that God of Carnage won the Tony Award for Best Play in 2009 and an award for Ms. Harden for Best Actress. I waited outside the theater for autographs the night I saw the show and everyone but Mr. Gandolfini greeted their fans at the stage door of the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater. The three other leads were quite gracious in taking their time on a night of bad New York weather to sign autographs and chat with everyone that waited for them.

God of Carnage may have a funny kind of name but the show is a big success story on Broadway. Just about every performance has sold out all their inventory since the show began.

God of Carnage is what some might call a "black comedy". It is a new play written by Yasmina Reza and shows us what can possibly happen when two sets of parents try to come to grips with helping to settle a fight that happened at school between their two sons. What starts out to be a civilized parental get together at one of their homes ends up being anything but a calm and rational solution. Unless of course you consider calling each other names and picking an adult fight "civilized". The aftermath is very funny and at times borders on hysterical. The show is only 90 minutes and doesn't have an intermission.

Now let me tell you about the exciting new cast change taking place in God of Carnage on November 17, 2009. Television's Annie Potts (making her Broadway debut) and Jimmy Smits (LA Law, NYPD Blue and lots of television, stage and film) will perform as one of the couples and Ken Stott (an original London cast member) and Christine Lahti (The Heidi Chronicles, Third which is Wendy Wasserstein's final play and lots of television and film) play the other set of parents.

I don't know if God of Carnage will be reviewed with the new cast. If you have not had the opportunity to see God of Carnage or think you might want to see it with the new cast members, consider calling Applause Theater Service, a local ticket agency in New York City.
