God of Carnage @ The Ahmanson

Apr 21, 2011 by     Posted under: live, performing arts, theatre

This is the most celebrated cast in recent Broadway history reuniting exclusively at the Ahmanson for the Tony Award®-winning comedy God of Carnage. This production will perform only at the Ahmanson and will not tour to any other city.

This is a production that truly took New York by storm: smashing all-time box office records and nabbing Tony Award® nominations for all four actors, and eventually earning the Tony Award® for Best Play, Best Director and a Best Actress Tony for Marcia Gay Harden. Knowing that Los Angeles deserves the best in everything, we have worked diligently for the past 6 months trying to secure all the elements that made that production a runaway success.

“God of Carnage” is set in a gentrified section of Brooklyn where two married couples meet to sort out a playground fight between their sons. At first, niceties are observed but as the evening progresses and the rum flows, the gloves come off and the night becomes a side-splitting free-for-all.”

After seeing this cast on Broadway, Ben Brantley of The New York Times wrote:

“Never underestimate the pleasure of watching really good actors behaving terribly . . . highly skilled stage performers take on roles that allow them to rip the stuffing out of one another, tear up the scenery, stomp on their own vanity and have the time of their lives.”

It’s not often that lightning strikes twice, but when you see the comedic sparks fly on stage with this extraordinary cast, you’ll be glad that we were able to make it possible.
