Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with David Mamet and the Cast of CTG's RACE
Casting is set for Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet's "Race," which opens September 7, 2014, at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Previews begin August 31, and performances run through September 28. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in rehearsal below!
Directed by longtime Mamet collaborator Scott Zigler, "Race" features acclaimed stage and screen actors Chris Bauer("True Blood," "The Wire," Broadway's "A Streetcar Named Desire"), Dominic Hoffman (Mamet's world premiere of "Faustus"), Jonno Roberts (Broadway's "Take Me Out") and DeWanda Wise (ABC's "Firelight").
In "Race," Mamet tackles America's most controversial subject in his provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. In "Race," two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with sexually assaulting a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface.
Tickets for "Race" are available at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org, the CTG box office located at the Ahmanson Theatre, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre box office starting two hours before curtain or by calling (213) 628-2772.
