The four stars in Yasmina Reza’s hit play God of Carnage have agreed to extend the production after taking a break for part of the summer. Performances will end after July 26th so James Gandolfini, Marcia Gay Harden, Hope Davis, and Jeff Daniels can fulfill other commitments, and resume on Sept. 8th, running through Nov. 15th. In an interview with the Times today, Daniels explained that "there were no ego trips, no outrageous demands. Just basic needs. We’re people that make plans, and we were making plans way back before we even started rehearsals." And in a nice little dig at Jeremy Piven's infamous withdrawal from Speed-the-Plow due to "mercury poisoning," Daniels added, "No one’s missed a show, and we’re eating fish." The brilliantly-performed one-act about two narcissistic Brooklyn couples fighting over their sons' playground tussle is up for a Tony against Dividing the Estate, reasons to be pretty, and 33 Variations, and both male and female cast members are competing against each other in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories. The award show will be broadcast on CBS Sunday night, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
