AMERICAN BUFFALO Extends Nickel Ticket Offer Through 11/16

The producers of the Broadway production of American Buffalo have extended the show's Vote American (Buffalo)! special offer through Sunday, November 16.  For all performances through Sunday, November 16 (inclusive), purchase one ticket and receive the second for one nickel.

David Mamet's classic American comic drama American Buffalo centers on the bungled robbery of a rare and valuable American Buffalo nickel from a neighborhood collector.  Directed by Tony Award winner Robert Falls and starring Tony Award nominee John Leguizamo, and in their Broadway debuts, Cedric the Entertainer and Academy Award nominee Haley Joel Osment, the play follows three small-time crooks who wax philosophically about society while conspiring to steal the coin.  Volcanic and motor mouthed Teach (Leguizamo) schemes and spars with fatherly, street-smart junk shop owner Donny (Cedric the Entertainer) enlisting Bobby (Osment), a slow-witted and desperate young delinquent, to carry out their misbegotten robbery.  A hilarious, banter-fueled heist comedy and a heartbreaking portrait of criminal desperation, American Buffalo's all-star cast is powered by David Mamet's stark, rapid-fire, uniquely American and unforgettable dialogue.

American Buffalo is written by David Mamet, directed by Robert Falls, and stars John Leguizamo, Cedric the Entertainer, and Haley Joel Osment.  The opening is set for Monday, November 17, at the Belasco Theatre, 111 West 44, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
