The Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross has delayed its opening by nearly a month. David Mamet’s drama, starring Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale, will now officially open on December 8 at the Schoenfeld Theatre, rather than the originally planned November 11 date. With the opening pushed back, however, the production will now play an additional three weeks through January 20, 2013. The show was originally planning to end its limited run on December 30.
The delay of the opening night results from rehearsal cancellations during Hurricane Sandy. With several Broadway productions already scheduled to open in the coming week, and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday on the horizon, the show's producers opted to open the show in December.
Glengarry Glen Ross stars Pacino as Shelley Levene, Cannavale as Ricky Roma, Tony nominee David Harbour as John Williamson, John C. McGinley as Dave Moss, Emmy winner Richard Schiff as George Aaronow, Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos as James Lingk and Murphy Guyer as Detective Baylen.
Glengarry Glen Ross follows a group of salesman in a Chicago real estate office competing for leads on potential clients. Glengarry Glen Ross first opened on Broadway on March 25, 1984 at the Golden Theatre and earned four Tony nominations, including Best Play. A 2005 revival starring Liev Schreiber, Alan Alda, Jeffrey Tambor and Tom Wopat won the Tony for Best Revival of a Play.
