God of Carnage on Broadway
James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), Jeff Daniels, Marcia Gay Harden, and Hope Davis star in this smart, viciously funny, and dark new play by Yasmina Reza (Art).
God of Carnage begins with two sets of parents meeting up to deal with the aftermath of a fight between their sons. What starts as a civilized discussion between grown adults about the importance of proper behavior soon devolves into a hysterical and very uncivilized session of tantrums, tears, and startling revelations.

Summary The play deals with the aftermath of a playground altercation between two boys and what happens when their parents meet to talk about it.
Our Recommendation Yasmina Reza's latest Broadway play, starring Marcia Gay Harden, James Gandolfini, Hope Davis, and Jeff Daniels, is a very funny but very dark look at marriage and manners. Though the ultimate point of God of Carnage - other than perhaps to illustrate that seemingly proper adults can behave with as much unthinking cruelty as their children - is unclear, it is a delight to watch its four stars throw themselves into verbal and physical combat with such relish.
