The box office opened yesterday for the Broadway revival of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Tuesday, September 18th at 10am. GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS will begin its limited run with previews on Tuesday, October 16th and an official opening on Sunday, November 11. The cast met the pess yesterday, and BroadwayWorld was there for the big event. Check out what all the cast members had to say about starting rehearsals for the show below!
The cast features Al Pacino, Murphy Guyer, Bobby Cannavale, Jeremy Shamos, Richard Schiff and John C. McGinley in this revival of David Mamet’s acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Tony Award-winning director, Daniel Sullivan will direct.
This production marks the 30th year anniversary of the play, which Mamet wrote in 1982. It premiered in the 1983-1984 season at the Royal National Theatre in London. That same year, it made its American debut at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre before moving to Broadway’s Golden Theatre where it ran for a total of 378 performances.
The stakes are high at a fly by night Chicago real estate office: 1st prize- a new Cadillac, 2nd prize- a set of steak knives, 3rd prize- you’re fired! GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS slices to the core of the American dream and exposes the depths people will go to stay on top of the game. Mamet himself worked in a real estate office in Chicago in 1969 setting up appointments for salesmen, and the play is influenced by the cutthroat politics he encountered.
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS will have set design by Tony Award winner Eugene Lee, costume design by Tony Award winner Jess Goldstein and lighting design by James F. Ingalls.
