Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini, and Marcia Gay Harden will star in the Broadway production of Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage. The show will begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on February 28 in anticipation of a March 22 opening.
As previously reported, Matthew Warchus will reprise his directing duties for God of Carnage, which he previously helmed at London’s Gielgud Theatre earlier this year. The play, which features a translation by Christopher Hampton, is about a schoolyard dispute and its aftermath.
Reza’s Art won the Tony Award for Best Play, and her prior Broadway work also includes Life X 3. Warchus is currently represented on Broadway by Boeing-Boeing, for which he received a Tony nomination, and previously helmed the Broadway productions of both of Reza’s plays, as well as revivals of Follies and True West.
