THE ANARCHIST, a new play written and directed by David Mamet starring Patti LuPone and Debra Winger, will be presented on Broadway at the newly refurbished Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street). THE ANARCHIST begins previews on Tuesday, November 13th and the official opening date set for Sunday, December 2nd.

One woman has been put away for life, and the other is making sure she stays there in the world premiere of this explosive new play by David Mamet. Two-time Tony Award® -winner Patti LuPone goes head-to-head with three-time Oscar nominee Debra Winger, in their most provocative roles yet. Watch the sparks fly as Mamet, who brought a fierce sense of pace and entertainment to the direction of his own Race, will once again be at the helm of this theatrical event.
From Evita to Gypsy, Patti LuPone is a true Broadway legend with an extensive history with David Mamet on both stage and screen, including Heist, State and Main and The Old Neighborhood. Celebrated for her critically-acclaimed work in An Officer and a Gentleman, Terms of Endearment, and Shadowlands, Debra Winger was most recently seen in the film Lola Versus, and on the hit HBO series, “In Treatment.” This rare stage appearance marks the Broadway debut for this celebrated actress.
