Breaking: Amy Morton Slated to Direct All-Female Broadway Production of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
Tony Award nominee Amy Morton is confirmed to direct an all-female cast in the new Broadway production of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS.
The production will begin on Broadway in May 2019. Exact dates, full design team, and Broadway theater will be announced at a later date.
David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross is set in a cutthroat Chicago real estate office where four salespeople compete to sell mostly worthless properties to unwitting customers. Whoever sells the most wins a car; whoever sells the least is out of a job - a ruthless environment where each character will do anything to come out on top. In this new Broadway staging, director Amy Morton, making her Broadway debut, will stage Mamet's fierce classic with an all-female ensemble.
Since it's Broadway debut in 1984, the play has been revived twice. The starry 2005 production was directed by Joe Mantello and featured Liev Schreiber, Alan Alda, and Jeffrey Tambor. The 2012 revival, directed by Daniel Sullivan, starred Al Pacino, Bobby Cannavale and David Harbour. A big screen adaptation was released in 1992, also starring Pacino, with Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Jonathan Pryce and Alec Baldwin.
