Bozeman Actors Theatre proudly presents Glengarry Glen Ross
Tuesday Aug. 18th, 2015
Bozeman Actors Theatre proudly presents David Mamet's award-winning masterpiece Glengarry Glen Ross, September 25th through October 4th at the Ellen Theatre. Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Glengarry Glen Ross is a biting, fast paced comedy-drama about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living as they scramble for their share of the American Dream. A celebrated 1993 film version starred Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino, and the play enjoyed two Broadway revivals within the past decade.
Playwright David Mamet's work is famous for its lean and gritty language possessed of such a singular rhythm that his dialogue has been dubbed 'Mamet speak’. Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has listed Mamet as one of the key inspirations of his own style of dialogue, derivative of Mamet’s mastery of the ‘poetry of the profane.’
Above all, Glengarry Glen Ross is a gift to actors, and Bozeman Actors Theatre has an exceptional cast on board. Directed by Cara Wilder, the ensemble features Gordon Carpenter, Richard Dunbar, Daniel Erickson, Colter Langan, Tom Morris, Mark Richard and Francis Wendt.
Audiences and critics agree, Glengarry Glen Ross is filled with “Crackling tension…ferocious comedy and drama,” (New York Times) and is “Wonderfully funny…A play to see, remember and cherish,” (New York Post). Don’t miss Mamet at his very best.
Performances dates and times are Friday through Sunday, September 25th through 27th, and Thursday through Sunday, October 1st through 4th with evening curtain at 8pm, and Sunday matinees at 3pm.
