My View: GOD OF CARNAGE OPENING NIGHT at SHAKESPEARE & CO.

It’s rare to find a Classical musician who is also totally at home in the world of Jazz.  Similarly, I’m not sure how often great Shakespearean actors are equally effective with contemporary plays. Opening night at Shakespeare & Company’s production of God Of Carnage displayed the exceptional versatility and riveting acting of four of Shakespeare &  Company’s players, Elizabeth Aspenlieder, Allyn Burrows, Jonathan Croy, and Kristin Wold.  The play is presented in Shakespeare’s Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre which is the perfect intimate setting to put the audience in the middle of the carnage.

The Tony and Olivier Award-winning New York smash hit by the author of Art (Yasmina Reza) takes you on a 90 minute thrill ride into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. Two sets of parents meet for the first time to settle their sons’ nasty schoolyard tangle.  Tensions quickly emerge around the best way to raise a child.  The meeting progresses, the liquor flows, and the gloves come off in this viciously funny comedy of bad manners.  Times Square Chronicles was there for the opening night as the champagne also flowed at the after party.
