Al Pacino returns to Broadway in David Mamet's acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross, directed by Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan. In Glengarry Glen Ross, 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! The play slices to the core of the American dream and exposes the depths people will go to stay on top of the game. Joining Pacino in the cast are Bobby Cannavale, Murphy Guyer, David Harbour, John C. McGinley, Richard Schiff, and Jeremy Shamos.
An Off-Broadway company dedicated to advancing an international view of contemporary playwriting, The Play Company most recently presented the OBIE Award-winning U.S. premiere of Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s play INVASION!, and the New York premiere of Marius von Mayenburg’s THE UGLY ONE. Other recent productions include the American premiere of Toshiki Okada’s play ENJOY and the world premiere of Eliza Clark’s EDGEWISE. The 2012-13 season is made possible, in part, through the generosity of The American Theatre Wing, which recently awarded the company a 2012 National Theatre Company Grant.
