The starry revival of Glengarry Glen Ross is the first play of the 2012-13 season to recoup its full investment, the show's producers announced. It’s no surprise, since the rapid-fire David Mamet show has been a constant frontrunner in box office grosses, frequently playing to over 100% capacity.
Led by two-time Tony Award winner Al Pacino, Glengarry also stars Tony nominees Bobby Cannavale, David Harbour and Jeremy Shamos, as well as Emmy winner Richard Schiff, John C. McGinley and Murphy Guyer. The production is directed by Daniel Sullivan.
Glengarry Glen Ross follows a group of salesman in a Chicago real estate office competing for leads on potential clients. The show 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.
Sullivan’s production opened on December 8 after 48 preview performances, and will run through January 20, 2013. The production features set design by Eugene Lee, costumes by Jess Goldstein and lighting by James F. Ingalls.
