"There is No Room for Losers in this Electric Play!"
Star power and quick-fire dialogue come to Broadway as Al Pacino stars in the 30th anniversary production of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross for a 10-week run at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Pacino portrays Shelly “The Machine” Levine, a once proud real estate salesman down on his luck. Levine and his colleagues in their Chicago office are desperate for sales. And things only get worse with a cruel sales contest that has them not only fighting for the prized Glengarry sales leads, but their jobs as well. To what extent will men go to survive to try and deliver the American dream?
Joining Pacino for this New York show’s revival is two-time Tony Award nominee Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, The MF with the Hat) as Ricky Roma, Richard Schiff (The West Wing, Seven), David Harbour (The Merchant of Venice, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), John C. McGinley (Seven, Office Space, Scrubs) and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park). Tony Award-winning director Daniel Sullivan (The Merchant of Venice, Time Stands Still, Proof) helms this production of Mamet’s classic tale of cutthroats that you can see for less with tickets from BestofNewYork.com.
Glengarry Glen Ross is a NYC play that will grab your attention with its wit and trademark “Mamet Speak.” But will also have you asking yourself well after the curtain goes down how you’d handle the situation of Shelly and his cohorts. This script comes close from Mamet’s heart, having worked in a real estate office in the late 1960s setting up appointments for the salesmen. Mamet saw the politics and do-or-die attitude up close, and it comes through in his book. This is your chance to see one of Broadway’s best shows with Al Pacino, one of the greatest actors ever to grace the stage and silver screen.
