American Buffalo Summary

David Mamet's masterpiece, American Buffalo, directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Robert Falls (Death of a Salesman, Long Day’s Journey into Night), is the story of three desperate men, one rare coin, and a plan to rip it off. Volatile Teach (John Leguizamo – Sexaholix: A Love Story; Freaks; Summer of Sam) schemes and spars with street-savvy junk-shop owner Donny (Cedric the Entertainer - Be Cool; Barbershop - making his Broadway debut) eventually enlisting Bobby (Haley Joel Osment—The Sixth Sense - also making his Broadway debut), a slow-witted, young delinquent, to carry out their robbery. A comedic, banter-fueled heist and a heartbreaking portrait of small-time criminals, American Buffalo's all-star cast is powered by David Mamet's brilliant, rapid-fire dialogue.
