La Mirada~With a talented cast and production team, the Tony Award-winning play God of Carnage was successful in its comedic ventures to keep audience members at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts completely riveted. Director Michael Arabian commits to the challenging task of staging French playwright Yasmina Reza’s complex and sagacious tale.
God of Carnage revolves around two sets of Brooklyn parents meeting to resolve an altercation between their eleven-year-old sons. As the play begins, tactful and polite exchanges are made, but by the end of the night, four professional adults find themselves at a stand-off with each other that test the limits of human nature.
The small cast of four, starring actors Hugo Armstrong, Jamison Jones, Amy Sloan, and Maura Vincent, demonstrated outstanding chemistry in a story with such unexpected twists and turns. Respectively, each actor portrayed their unique character in an impeccable manner. Landing one punch line after another, audience members spent most of the hour-and-half run in hysterical laughter. God of Carnage didn’t just keep the audience laughing, but contained various shocking, unpredictable moments that had them perplexed, yet excited. With a successful first weekend, God of Carnage is quickly becoming characterized as a must-see for all theater fanatics.
