LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden, the original Broadway cast of "God of Carnage," will reunite in Los Angeles for six weeks.

The stage comedy's producers said the production will run at the Center Theatre Group's Ahmanson Theatre from April 5 through May 15. Opening night is scheduled for April 13.

Matthew Warchus, winner of the Tony Award for his direction of "God of Carnage," returns to lead the play's original four stars -- all of whom were nominated for Tony Awards for their performances. Harden won the award for Best Actress and the show was named Best Play.

"When I saw the original production on Broadway, I knew that I wanted to bring the play to Los Angeles but I never dreamed that we would get this cast," CTG Artistic Director Michael Ritchie said in a statement Wednesday. "Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden -- four terrific actors in four great roles squaring off at the Ahmanson. This isn't just the theatrical event of the season, it's the battle of the century and it's only happening here in Los Angeles."
