This fall, two-time Tony Award winner Al Pacino will be joined on stage Tony Award nominee David Harbour, Emmy Award winner Richard Schiff and Tony Award nominee Jeremy Shamos in the Broadway revival of David Mamet’s acclaimed Pulitzer prize-winning drama Glengarry Ross. As previously announced, Tony Award nominee Bobby Cannavale has been cast in the role of Richard “Ricky” Roma.

Harbour, who recently appeared as Bassanio in The Merchant of Venice with Al Pacino, will be playing the role of John Williamson. Schiff won an Emmy Award for playing Toby Zeigler on the hit NBC television drama “The West Wing,” and will make his Broadway debut in the role of George Aaronow. Shamos received a 2012 Tony Award nomination for his role in Clybourne Park and will be playing James Lingk.

Glenngarry Ross is scheduled to begin rehearsals on Wednesday, September 12th, with previews beginning on Tuesday , October 16th and an official opening date set for Sunday, Novemebr 11th at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Tony Award winning director, Daniel Sullivan (The Columnist, The Merchant of Venice, Time Stands Still, Proof) will direct.

This production marks the 30th year anniversary of the play, which David 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.

According to press notes, “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.”

Glengarry Glen Ross will have set design by Tony Award winner Eugene Lee (A Streetcar Named Desire, The Homecoming, Wicked) and costume design by Tony Award winner Jess Goldstein (Newsies, The Rivals, The Merchant of Venice).

Glengarry Glen Ross will be produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Jam Theatricals who produced the 2005 Tony Award winning revival and subsequently worked with Mamet, producing November, Speed-The-Plow, A Life in The Theatre and Race. Richards and Frankel will be producing the new David Mamet play, The Anarchist this fall on Broadway.
