Who says the theater is a dying art form? According to

, the acclaimed theatrical comedy-drama God of Carnage is continuing to enjoy a very robust run on the Great White Way, having pulled in over $1 million at the box office so far. The impressive earning streak is quite noteworthy for the Tony Award-winning hit considering how (a) it is not a musical and (b) the production just went “dark” until early September. The show’s success is also a testament to the drawing power of its incredible cast — James Gandolfini, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, and Marcia Gay Harden — all of whom are veterans of both the big and small screen. Despite the hiatus, Broadway devotees need not fret: the show will go on (again) as of Sept. 8.
