ProArts Presents GOD OF CARNAGE, Now thru 5/11
ProArts is proud to present "God of Carnage" as the second show of their Spring 2014 season. This Tony Award winning comedy was written by Yasmina Reza and adapted by Christopher Hampton. Subtitled "A Comedy of manners...without the manners", "God of Carnage" is the winner of three Tony Awards including Best Play. New York Newsday calls it "Hysterical!" Liz Smith says "Fasten your seatbelts and go! This comedy of grown people holding back and letting go is one of the funniest things I've encountered in 60 years of Broadway!"
A playground altercation between eleven-year old boys brings together two set of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their principles in tatters.
The show opens tonight, April 25 and runs three weekends until Mother's Day, May 11. It plays Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pmand Sundays at 3:00 pm (no show on 4/27). ProArts offers reserved seats at $22.00. Kama'?ina nights, with discounts for Hawaii residents, are scheduled for Saturday, April 26, and Thursdays, May 1 and May 8.
