The Broadway production of Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning dark comedy God of Carnage has advanced its closing date by three weeks. The play will close on June 6, rather than the previously announced June 27, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. The new date was set after “looking at business for late June,” according to an announcement from the show’s producers.
God of Carnage opened on March 22, 2009, and received Tonys for Best Play and Best Actress (Marcia Gay Harden). The play currently stars Jeff Daniels (who originated the role of Alan and returned to the show on March 2, 2010, in the role of Michael), Dylan Baker, Lucy Liu, and original London star Janet McTeer and is directed by Matthew Warchus.
Described as a comedy of manners without the manners, God of Carnage deals with the aftermath of a playground altercation between two boys and what happens when their parents meet for dinner to talk about it.
