5/1-5/27-God of Carnage
Capital Rep Theatre
I have long said, “If it’s at the Capital Rep, it’s got to be good”, and God of Carnage proves to be no exception. I had the wonderful opportunity to see a special preview, and what a great show this was.
God of Carnage is not a musical, so there is not a benchmark musical like Man of La Mancha to compare it to (we’re all still talking about that one!). It is dialogue. The last play of dialogue was Sisters Rosensweig, which was an autobiography of Playwright Wendy Wasserstein and may have been academic for some.
God of Carnage, on the other hand, is a comedy that will leave you laughing, wondering, then laughing again. Men will agree with the men, women will agree with the women, and the parents will agree with everyone.
First and foremost, I want to say the acting is spectacular.
