"God of Carnage"

Director Virginia Drake has pulled no punches in ensuring that the uproariously funny and furiously outrageous City Lights Theater Company production of God of Carnage will both delight and shock its audience with a terrific take on this dark drama/comedy about modern-day parenting.  Playwrirght  Yasmina Reza has taken the current term “helicopter parents” (i.e., those parents who zoom in to over-involve themselves in matters kids once handled themselves) and has rendered two sets of busy bodies who soon become “fighter-jet” parents. 

For my full review, please go to Talkin' Broadway:
