Broadway’s hottest comedy, the Tony Award-winning Best Play, GOD OF CARNAGE welcomes Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Christine Lahti (“Chicago Hope”) as ‘Veronica,’ Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Annie Potts (“Designing Women”) as ‘Annette,’ Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Jimmy Smits (“The West Wing”) as ‘Alan,’ and Olivier Award-nominee Ken Stott (original cast member of West End productions of God of Carnage and Art) as ‘Michael’ to the cast tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17. GOD OF CARNAGE plays at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street). 

After receiving rave reviews in London, GOD OF CARNAGE opened on Broadway March 22, 2009 to unanimous praise.

Ken Stott created the role of ‘Michael’ in the London premiere of the play.  Ken Stott is appearing with the support of Actors' Equity Association.  The producers gratefully acknowledge Actors' Equity Association for its assistance of this production.

The Yasmina Reza comedy won the Tony Award for Best Play and Best Direction of a Play (Matthew Warchus). GOD OF CARNAGE also won the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

GOD OF CARNAGE 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.

GOD OF CARNAGE reunites the creative team that staged the Tony Award-winning Best Play, Art. Designed by Mark Thompson (sets and costumes), with lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker & Chris Cronin, the play has music by Gary Yershon.
