AMERICAN BUFFALO began previews on March 22 at Circle in the Square Theatre (235 W 50th Street) and will officially open on Thursday, April 14, 2022, exactly two years after it was originally scheduled to open, for a strictly limited 16-week engagement.

Three small time hustlers want a bigger cut of the American dream. David Mamet's classic about loyalty and greed returns to Broadway more explosive and pointed than ever, exposing a timely American truth: crime and business are two sides of the same coin, under the direction of Neil Pepe (Tony-winning Artistic Director of Atlantic Theater Company).

AMERICAN BUFFALO premiered on Broadway in 1977, received the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play and officially established David Mamet as one of the major new playwrights of the second half the 20th century. It went on to be nominated for the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play for the 1983 production. The play was subsequently revived off-Broadway in 1981, on Broadway in 1983 and off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theatre Company in 2000.

AMERICAN BUFFALO begins preview performances tonight Tuesday, March 22, 2022 with an official opening set for Thursday, April 14, 2022. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, July 10, 2022 at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Broadway (235 W 50th Street).

Ben Brantley of The New York Times hails it as, "David Mamet's most affecting and gripping play," and Frank Rich of The New York Times declares, "American Buffalo is one of the best American plays of the last decade."

Writing in The New Yorker, John Lahr said, "David Mamet belongs in the pantheon of this century's great dramatists... American Buffalo, is his masterpiece."

The creative team for the production includes Scott Pask (Set Design), Dede Ayite (Costume Design), Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design) and Telsey + Company (Casting).
