BWW TV Special: Meet the New Cast of Broadway's GOD OF CARNAGE
Broadway's hottest comedy, the Tony Award-winning Best Play, GOD OF CARNAGE recently welcomed Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Christine Lahti ("Chicago Hope") as ‘Veronica,' Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Annie Potts ("Designing Women") as ‘Annette,' Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Jimmy Smits ("The West Wing") as ‘Alan,' and Olivier Award-nominee Ken Stott (original cast member of West End productions of God of Carnage and Art) as ‘Michael' to the cast. GOD OF CARNAGE plays at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street).
BroadwayWorld.com recently sat down with the new cast of the show to talk about their take on these characters, how they were approaching the show, and of course -- all about the CARNAGE!
The Yasmina Reza comedy won the Tony Award for Best Play and Best Direction of a Play (Matthew Warchus). GOD OF CARNAGE also won the 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
GOD OF CARNAGE is a comedy of manners without the manners. The play deals with the aftermath of a playground altercation between two boys and what happens when their parents meet to talk about it.
GOD OF CARNAGE reunites the creative team that staged the Tony Award-winning Best Play, Art. Designed by Mark Thompson (sets and costumes), with lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker & Chris Cronin, the play has music by Gary Yershon.
