Al Pacino returns to Broadway in David Mamet's acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross. Pacino, who was nominated for an Oscar for portraying the role of Ricky Roma in the film version, will now take on the role of Shelly Levene and will be joined on stage by Emmy Award winner and two-time Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale (The Motherf**cker with the Hat, Will & Grace) in the role of Richard “Ricky” Roma, Emmy Award winner Richard Schiff (The West Wing) in the role of George Aaronow, Tony Award nominee David Harbour (The Merchant of Venice, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) in the role of John Williamson and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park) in the role of James Lingk. Tony Award-winning director, Daniel Sullivan (The Merchant of Venice, Time Stands Still, Proof) will direct.
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 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.
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.
