Matthew Warchus, who directed the London production, will also helm the Broadway staging. Theatre and casting will be announced shortly.

The play, according to press notes, "deals with the aftermath of a playground fight between two boys and what happens when their parents meet to talk about it."

Although the London company featured Ralph Fiennes, Tamsin Greig, Janet McTeer and Ken Stott, the New York Post recently reported that James Gandolfini ("The Sopranos") and Marcia Gay Harden ("Pollock") would star in the New York Carnage, which features a translation by Christopher Hampton.

Reza is a Paris-based playwright whose hit play Art became a global success after its first West End production at Wyndham's Theatre in 1996.
