God of Carnage extends its run by two weeks
Yasmina Rezaï¿½s comic-drama, God of Carnage, translated by Christopher Hampton, has extended its run by two weeks, and will now run through to 2 Aug 2009
God of Carnage opened at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on 22 Mar 2009, following previews from 28 Feb and was originally scheduled to close on 19 Jul 2009.
The show opened to excellent reviews: "the most fun you'll have in the theater this season."
(www.newyorktheatreguide.com); "a familiar comic journey ..., but it travels first class" (NY Times); "keeps the fur flying and the laughter landing" (NY Daily News); "gleefully nasty fun." (NY Post); "Evenings in the theater don't get any funnier" (The REcord); "it's elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile." (Variety).
God of Carnage: What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children. A calm and rational debate between grown ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse - much worse.
Directed by Matthew Warchus, who helmed the London production of the show, the comedy stars Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, Marcia Gay Harden and James Gandolfini.
