Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Rehearsals for La Jolla's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

La Jolla Playhouse presents its upcoming production of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning Glengarry Glen Ross, directed by Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley, running September 18 – October 21, 2012 in the Sheila and Hughes Potiker Theatre.  BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the rehearsals below.

The cast features Peter Maloney (Broadway's West Side Story, Six Degrees of Separation) as "Shelly Levene," Jeff Marlow (Colony Theatre's Around the World in 80 Days) as "James Lingk," Matt MacNelly (NY Fringe Festival's Fourteen Flights) as "Baylen," Manu Narayan (Broadway's Bombay Dreams) as "Richard Roma," Kevin Skousen (Public Theatre's Talk Radio) as "Dave Moss," Ray Anthony Thomas (Broadway's Race) as "George Aaronow" and Johnny Wu (Playhouse's Peter and the Starcatchers, Broadway's Chinglish) as "John Williamson."

The creative team includes: Christopher Ashley, director; Todd Rosenthal, set design; Toni Leslie James (Playhouse's Milk Like Sugar), costume design; David Lander (Playhouse's 33 Variations), lighting design; David Corsello, sound design; Shirley Fishman, dramaturg.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Glengarry Glen Ross is Mamet's scorching play about a group of desperate salesmen in a Chicago real estate office. When a contest is announced to earn the new sales leads, the men resort to manipulation, bribery and even theft to keep their jobs. The Darwinian struggle that ensues is a stinging indictment of a culture that rewards the strong, punishes the weak and values success above all else. Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley brings Mamet to The Playhouse stage for the very first time with this modern masterpiece. The New York Times stated, "Mr. Mamet hears American scheming with an exactitude and delight still unsurpassed by any other dramatist."

Tickets for Glengarry Glen Ross are available online at LaJollaPlayhouse.org or by calling The Playhouse Box Office at (858) 550-1010.
