God of Carnage Calls a "Time Out" July 26; Performances Resume in September

News   God of Carnage Calls a "Time Out" July 26; Performances Resume in September Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning comedy God of Carnage, starring Tony winner Marcia Gay Harden, James Gandolfini, Jeff Daniels and Hope Davis, plays its last performance of the summer July 26.

Since beginning previews Feb. 28, God of Carnage has played to packed houses at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre following its March 22 opening, which was greeted with critical.

Originally scheduled as a limited engagement through July 19, producers of the hit comedy announced that the production and its complete original Broadway cast would extend through Nov. 15 following a summer hiatus that runs through the beginning of September. Performances will resume Sept. 8.

The entire cast of God of Carnage earned Best Actor/Actress Tony nominations, respectively, for their work in the production. Marcia Gay Harden took home the honor for her performance. God of Carnage also earned Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Direction for Matthew Warchus.

God of Carnage, according to press notes, "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."

The Broadway production reunites the West End creative team: set and costume designer Mark Thompson, lighting designer Hugh Vanstone and sound designers Simon Baker and Chris Cronin with music by Gary Yershon. God of Carnage is produced on Broadway by Robert Fox, David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers, Stuart Thompson, Scott Rudin, Jon B. Platt, The Weinstein Company and The Shubert Organization.
