LUBIN, ABATE, and HAYES
"God of Carnage" -- a celebrated Tony Award (2009) winning Broadway play, set in a gentrified section of Brooklyn where two married couples meet to sort out a playground fight between their sons. At first, niceties are observed but as the evening progresses and the rum flows, the gloves come off and the night becomes a side-splitting free-for-all.
The New Yorker calls this laugh-out-loud hilarity "ninety minutes of sustained mayhem." In unanimous critical praise for its Broadway debut, God of Carnage has been hailed "first class" (The New York Times) and "scabrously funny" (USA Today) and earned the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and three Tony Awards, including Best Play.
The Broadway production originally starred James Gandolfini, Marcia Gay Harden, and Jeff Daniels.
The Albany production stars: Brigitte Viellieu (Veronica), Ken Krugman (Michael), Michael McKenzie (Alan), and Brenny Rebine (Annette)
BALCONY will be hosting a cocktail
party in the lobby from 6 p.m. until show time at 7:30 p.m.
The cocktail party will recognize and honor BALCONY co-chairs: Catherine M. Abate, Alan Lubin, and Robert M. Hayes
