Attended a performance on the 4th of July. Though the audience was sparse because it was the holiday, the cast put on a great performance of this interesting play. Well worth it!

Can't begin to rave how much I enjoyed this evening watching the four actors in the play...they each were very special in their roles and kept the audience entertained for the entire play...I am sure everyone knows someone if not all the...continued

Excellent acting on all account. Hooray for Norman Gee! The director has done a superb job with the pacing. Serious themes...mixed with engaging physical comedy with sharp wit.

This play was very well cast - all the actors were well-suited for their roles. I found it surprisingly funny for such a dark subject, and it expertly displayed how nothing is entirely black and white. The one thing I didn't like is that there...continued

The acting was superb and the play engaging. Loved the intimate theatre too. The evening was destroyed however by an audience member who was either drunk or had Tourette's. In this intimate space she laughed (cackled) loudly about every 4 minutes...continued

the acting/production was such that i got the play, which is harder than it might appear. i could quibble about this and that among the actors ('veronica' could benefit from alexander work to stop her head from bobbing every which way almost...continued

I took two close friends to see this wonderful play after having seen it on Broadway a few years back. I was truly impressed with the entire production. The set was spot on, and all of the four principals threw themselves (literally) into their...continued

God of Carnage was a fun and interesting portrayal of just how much pressure some people can take before they snap.

Nice cast - fun to watch but did not laugh as much as I thought I would.
Good theater - but a little warm inside in the summer.

Truly AWFUL! There was a director listed in the proggramm; it's a shame she didn't make it to any of the rehearsals. I walked out after a half hour.

The production was amateurish. The actors forgot their lines or tripped over each other's lines, and the direction was clumsy. As a result, the pacing was way off. What should have been a quick paced farce, became an uncomfortable viewing...continued

Wonderful premise for a play: two families whose youngsters have gotten into an altercation meet for a "civilized" discussion, and all hell breaks loose. One problem--making us believe that these two couples would stay locked in mortal combat for...continued

My Friend and I had a great relaxing evening. We both had lots of laughters and would recommend the show to anybody. But not suitable for young teenagers. We thought, all the Actors/Actresses (4 total)were in superb shape and performed...continued

small intimate theater, nice seating and the actors were very good in the dark comedy about parents going through the motions attempting to resolve an issue with their kids. During the meeting out comes the good, the bad and the ugly, ups and...continued

This a charming little theater, and quality entertainment! I guess it's what you'd call "semi-professional" but I was impressed.

This seemed like 45 minutes of awkward silences, no humor and just tedious. The set was nice, but the only thing noteworthy in that time was a character throwing up on set. Honestly, I was so disappointed in this after hearing such raves about the...continued
