Broadway's Oleanna Moves Up Closing Date

Julia Stiles & Bill Pullman in 'Oleanna'

At the time of its closing, the production will have played 15 previews and 65 performances.

The Broadway premiere of David Mamet’s 1992 play Oleanna is closing earlier than expected. The production will end its Broadway run on December 6 instead of January 3, as previously announced. At the time of its closing, the production, directed by Doug Hughes and starring Julia Stiles (in her Broadway debut) and Bill Pullman, will have played 15 previews and 65 performances at the Golden Theatre.

“On behalf of the producers, all of whom are so proud of this incredible production, we realize closing now is the best decision for the play,” producer Jeffrey Finn said in a statement. “While we all hoped Oleanna could run longer, looking over the next few weeks prior to the holidays, we know the most financially responsible decision is to avoid potential upcoming losses.

This production of Oleanna, which centers on a power struggle between a self-absorbed college professor and his troubled student, opened to at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in June before landing on Broadway on September 29.

The Broadway production of the show features design by Neil Patel, costume design by Catherine Zuber, lighting design by Donald Holder and fight direction by Rick Sordelet.
