Mamet: Back with a Vengeance

When one door closes, another opens. These words could not ring more truer than tonight, October 12, when another David Mamet show opens on Broadway. Though the star-studded production of Race closed only a few months ago, audiences can again be delighted with Mamet’s funny, heartwarming… dickish… words in A Life in the Theatre.

This limited engagement (Closing January 2) production shows Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight playing two actors (big stretch). The play itself details the relationship of these two men from a “backstage theatre life” perspective.

The production is playing The Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

Pacino To Play Phil Spector

New York Times reports that Al Pacino has signed on to play Phil Spector in a biopic written and directed by David Mamet for HBO. You know Mamet right? The whole THEATRE IS DEAD guy. I’ve been looking forward to this project as anything with David Mamet’s name on it gets me all wound up, hearing that Pacino is gonna be involved too just gets me doubly excited. Doubly.
