Play
Direct from a smash Los Angeles engagement, David Mametís Oleanna is a gripping account of a power struggle between a male university professor and one of his female students. Starring Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles and directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, David's Mamet's incendiary play is regarded as one of the most provocative dramas of our time -- dividing audiences into heated debate by compelling them to side with either character. This new production marks the long-awaited Broadway premiere of this visceral, modern-day classic. The Wall Street Journal proclaimed this production, "Enthralling! A knockdown punch!"

Review - Oleanna & Circle Mirror TransformationReview - Oleanna & Circle Mirror Transformation
by Kristin Salaky - October 26, 2009

Michael Dale reviews Oleanna and Circle Mirror Transformation. In 1992, when David Mamet directed the premiere production of his controversial play, Oleanna, the name 'Long Dong Silver' was still fresh in the minds of Americans who followed the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings. Susan Faludi's bestseller, Backlash, was urging women to stand up to 'The Undeclared War Against American Women' while Camille Paglia criticized the feminist movement for teaching women to see themselves as victims. Take Back The Night rallies on college campuses encouraged women to publicly announce the names of men who have raped them, though the definition of what exactly constituted a rape was still being publicly debated.
