Blackfriar's Theatre Presents David Mamet's A LIFE IN THE THEATRE, 2/25-3/10

Reality meets make-believe in Blackfriars Theatre's production of David Mamet's hilarious play, A Life in the Theatre. This classic comedy takes us into the lives of two actors; Robert, a self-important, but insecure theatre veteran, and John, an eager and young up-and comer. Through a series of unrelenting comical scenes, we see the estrangement of youth from age and the wider, inevitable and endless cycle of life, in and out of theatre.
A Life in the Theatre is an endearing and heartfelt exploration of the drama and pitfalls behind the limelight. "This is a funny and sad look at both the rise of a young actor and the downward spiral of an older actor who is past his prime," says the play's director, David Runzo. "David Mamet has captured, in 26 scenes, several years in the progression of people's lives in the theater. Sometimes hysterically funny and at other times disturbingly sad, this play always keeps your interest. We have two of Rochester's best actors doing some of their best work in years."
