Get Ready For Carnage On Broadway

Get Ready For Carnage On Broadway

No, I'm not talking about all hell breaking loose once all the myriad shows have closed on the Great White Way over the next week and a half.

Instead, I'm talking about the upcoming Broadway berth of Yasmina Reza's wickedly funny and downright, um, visceral God Of Carnage descending upon a Rialto stage later this spring.

According to Baz Bamigboye of London's Daily Mail, the Main Stem incarnation will star Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, Marcia Gay Harden and James Gandolfini.

After having enjoyed the West End mounting (which included what the West End Whingers have graciously named the "year's best vomiting scene"), I'll be anxiously awaiting the new staging.

And with this cast, so should you.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

It does sound like a great cast. I love Jeff Daniels, especially from "The Purple Rose of Cairo." And for a chance to see James Gandolfini on stage, I'd cope with the vomiting!

I certainly hope it's better than her last play to visit New York. "A Spanish Play" was simply dreadful at Classic Stage last year despite a very talented cast.

Esther - The vomiting as handled on the other side of the pond was hilarious. Seriously.

Mondschein, I rather enjoyed God Of Carnage, but realize it may not be for everyone.
