Glengarry Glen Ross opens tonight, Saturday, December 8, 2012, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street). The limited run has been extended through Sunday, January 20, 2013. BroadwayWorld brings you photos of the cast in action below!
The cast is led by two-time Tony Award winner Al Pacino, who is joined by Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale (The Motherf**ker with the Hat), Tony nominee David Harbour (Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park), Emmy Award winner Richard Schiff (“The West Wing”), John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”) and Murphy Guyer in this revival of David Mamet’S acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Tony Award-winning director, Daniel Sullivan (The Merchant of Venice, Proof) directs.
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 has set design by Tony Award winner Eugene Lee (A Streetcar Named Desire, The Homecoming, Wicked), costume design by Tony Award winner Jess Goldstein (Newsies, The Rivals, The Merchant of Venice) and lighting design by James F. Ingalls (The People in the Picture, The Elephant Man, ‘night Mother).
