Eat sushi at Akiko's on Mason - best sushi around, get a sumo roll... Then the theatre is 1 minute away on foot!

Theater is tiny and you wonder how all those actors will fit on stage but they do. Set design is fabulous. I cannot recommend this show too highly.

It's a light comedy that did a good job of capturing how spouses can have a love/hate relationship. Perfect 70-minute length for my attention span.

Small theater so there are no bad seats. Excellent set design. Well-cast. Players acquitted themselves well. I very much enjoyed the performance.

Quotes & Highlights

“The set is both artistic and realistic. The acting was uniformly outstanding and the audience was totally enthralled. They stood up, and wildly applauded. Now, you can’t get any better than that.” -BeyondChron
“A hilarious, sharp-eyed, cringe-inducing exposé of what’s hidden under individual veneers of civilization … At the Shelton, in Lisa Drostova’s tight direction, text and movement all come across loud and clear.” -examiner.com

Description

The Shelton Theater presents Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Lisa Drostova.

About the Ticket Supplier: Jean Shelton Foundation

The Shelton Theater (Jean Shelton Foundation), founded in 1993 by Matt Shelton, is an extension of the (Jean) Shelton Studios founded in 1961. The theater hosts live performances of musicals, narrative plays, improv, poetry, solo performances, and concerts. Film screenings and contemporary fine art are exhibited as well. We provide artists with the creative respect they need and a venue within which to observe their works. There are two intimate venues of 74 and 60 seats. Literally thousands of performing artists have created works here and the energy of those creations gives the theaters an atmosphere of truth and power. Many have revealed the aches of their heart and the strength of their imagination on these stages.
