Theater magic revealed: God of Carnage at Capital Rep

The comedy “God of Carnage,” currently on the boards at Capital Rep, is a blistering commentary on uppermiddle class values, with many comedic twists and turns as two sets of parents argue over a physical altercation between their 11-year-old sons. You could call it Three Stooges for intellectuals, but that doesn’t quite grasp one gross-out comedy moment that has audience members gasping in disbelief.

So how exactly does Capital Rep get one of the characters to projectile vomit?

The Times Union’s Yi-Ke Peng headed over to Capital Rep and made this video.
