James Gandolfini - James Gandolfini Play Breaks Los Angeles Theatre Records

James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden's God Of Carnage has become the most successful non-musical play ever staged at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre.
The production closed on Sunday (29May11) after eight weeks, grossing over $7.5 million (£4.7 million). Almost 98,000 theatre fans saw the Yasmina Reza play, which also featured Jeff Daniels and Hope Davis.
The production picked up the Best Play Tony Award in 2009 when Gandolfini, Harden, Daniels and Davis starred in the show on Broadway.
The Ahmanson's previous top-grossing play was The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, which starred Lily Tomlin. That production earned $3.7 million (£2.3 million) for an eight-week run in the 2002-03 season, according to the Los Angeles Times.
