Photo Coverage: THE ANARCHIST on Broadway - Opening Night Curtain Call!
THE ANARCHIST, a new play written and directed by David Mamet opened last night on Broadway at the newly refurbished Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street). BWW was there to capture the whole night - check out photos from the opening night curtain call below!
The production stars two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone, who has previously appeared in Mamet’s The Woods, All Men are Whores, The Blue Hour, The Water Engine, Edmond and The Old Neighborhood; and three-time Academy Award nominee Debra Winger, whose previous stage credits include How I Learned to Drive and Ivanov at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts and The Exonerated in New York. Winger will be making her Broadway debut in The Anarchist.
In The Anarchist, LuPONE plays the title character and WINGER plays a prison official —these actresses will make theatrical fireworks as one character, put away for life, wants out while the other wants to make sure she stays inside. This explosive new work by MAMET is about passion, redemption, deception, and revolution. Mamet, who brought a fierce sense of pace and excitement to the direction of his own Race, will once again be at the helm of the production.
THE ANARCHIST features scenic and costume design by Academy Award winner Patrizia von Brandenstein (Amadeus) and lighting design by Tony Award winner Jeff Croiter (Peter and the Starcatcher).
