Katonah Classic Stage Presents Tony-Winning GOD OF CARNAGE Alongside American Premiere of DR GLAS

Katonah, NY – Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), Westchester County’s premiere professional theatre company dedicated to classic plays, will give audiences a double dose of Broadway talent this Spring. Starting in May, audiences will be treated to Yasmina Reza’s hysterical satire “God of Carnage” in repertory with a dramatic interpretation of the classic Swedish novella “Dr. Glas.”

Returning to Whippoorwill Hall in Armonk, KCS will kick-off the Spring season with the 2009 Tony Winner for Best Play, God of Carnage. Audiences will be thrown into a whirlpool of societal clashes, exposing the wild undercurrents lurking beneath the veneer of refined decorum. Yasmina Reza’s dark, classic comedy unravels the thin veil of civility that masks our primal instincts. The New York Times lauded, “Ms. Reza’s streamlined anatomy of the human animal which incites the kind of laughter that comes from the gut, as involuntary as hiccups or belching.” Directed by Artistic Director Trent Dawson, KCS promises an unforgettable theatrical experience with a cast of fan favorites whose collective resumes boast everything from Broadway hits to Oscar nominated movies, including Claire Karpen (KCS’ Betrayal ), Brenda Withers (KCS’ Private Lives), Jordan Lage (KCS’ Oleanna) and Alvin Keith (KCS’s Dinner with Friends). Audiences can also enjoy a signature cocktail, God of Carnage Rum Punch before or after the show next door at Amore Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen!

In stark contrast to the hilarity of God of Carnage, KCS is equally proud to present the North American Live premiere of Dr. Glas, a gripping psychological thriller featuring a tour-de-force performance by Broadway veteran Daniel Gerroll (Chariots of Fire, The Blacklist). This Jeffrey Hatcher adaptation of Hjalmar Soderberg’s Swedish novel will have audiences on the edge of their seats as Dr. Glas takes them through a shocking transformation which will stay deeply embedded in their imagination.

Tickets for all performances on sale now at www.KatonahClassicStage.com. KCS will host God of Carnage’s Opening Night Party on May 3rd, at the North Castle Library.
