The upcoming Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross has canceled its first three preview performances due to prior commitments of show star Al Pacino. The production, which was scheduled to begin performances October 16, will now begin its run on October 19 at the Schoenfeld Theatre. Opening night remains scheduled for November 11.
"Al Pacino has commitments in Los Angeles and a publicity commitment for the preview of his upcoming film Stand Up Guys at the Chicago Film Festival this week," Pacino's publicist said in a statement.
Written by David Mamet, Glengarry Glen Ross is the story of a cutthroat quest to win a sales contest in a Chicago real estate office. In addition to Pacino as Shelly “The Machine” Levene, the production will star Bobby Cannavale as Ricky Roma, Tony nominee David Harbour as John Williamson, John C. McGinley as Dave Moss, Emmy winner Richard Schiff as George Aaronow and Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos as James Lingk and Murphy Guyer as Detective Baylen.
