Written by French playwright Yasmina Reza, God of Carnage made its debut in Switzerland in 2006 before coming to London's West End in 2008 for a run that would earn the production an Olivier award and three Tony awards the following year. The story revolves around a schoolyard incident of violence between two children that sparks a meeting between their parents. The ensuing encounter results in a chaotic conversation that touches on subjects of violence, chauvinism, racial anxiety and homophobia. Upper middle-class living is explored in this daring, evocative and hilarious evening of theater, which has enjoyed wild success in both New York and London. Reza's tack-sharp wit and gutsy skill with the pen attribute themselves to this fanged excavation of what lies beneath normative complacency when the gloves are off.

The Second City enterprise has expanded into other parts of North America, with various touring troupes and satellite theaters based in cities like Los Angeles and Toronto.
The roots of The Stone Foxes can be traced back to high school, when Aaron Mort teamed up with brothers Spence and Shannon Koehler to form a blues-rock band. After a move to San Francisco for college, the trio added Avi Vinocur, a guitarist and bassist who helped bolster and solidify the band's sound. The group is heavily inspired by the crop of modern, electrified blues rock acts that popped up in the early 2000s, such as the White Stripes and the Black Keys. Brawny blues riffs are characteristic to The Stone Foxes' music, as is a strong melodic sensibility in the vein of 1970s artists such as The Band and Led Zeppelin. Now pared down to a trio again, The Stone Foxes continues to release studio albums whilst turning new fans onto its music via high-energy live performances.

Tumbleweed Wanderers released its self-titled EP at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco at the end of 2011, before dropping its debut album in 2012.
