New Details Revealed on All-Female GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

BroadwayWorld previously reported last year that an all-female production of David Mamet's play Glengarry Glen Ross was in the works.

Now, according to Page Six, more details have emerged.

The show will be co-produced by Jeffrey Richards and Rebecca Gold, and will be directed by Amy Morton.

"Mamet OK'd a female version," Richards said. "He's all about the art. He liked the idea. He only said we should keep the characters' same names."

Casting has not been set, but the show is planned for this summer.

Glengarry Glen Ross won the Pulitzer Prize in 1984. The play shows parts of two days in the lives of four desperate Chicago real estate agents who are prepared to engage in any number of unethical, illegal acts -from lies and flattery to bribery, threats, intimidation and burglary - to sell undesirable real estate to unwitting prospective buyers. It is based on Mamet's experience having previously worked in a similar office.

The play opened on Broadway on March 25, 1984 at the John Golden Theatre, and closed on February 17, 1985 after 378 performances. The production was directed by Gregory Mosher, and starred Joe Mantegna, Mike Nussbaum, Robert Prosky, Lane Smith, James Tolkan, Jack Wallace and J. T. Walsh. It was nominated for four Tony awards including Best Play, Best Director, and two Best Featured Actor nominations for Robert Prosky and Joe Mantegna, who won the production's one Tony.

A 2005 Broadway revival directed by Joe Mantello opened at the Bernard B. JacobsTheatre. The revival starred Liev Schreiber as Roma, Alan Alda as Levene, Frederick Welleras Williamson, Gordon Clapp as Moss, Jeffrey Tambor as Aaronow, Tom Wopat as Lingk and Jordan Lage as Baylen. The revival received numerous Tony Award nominations, including Best Featured Actor nominations for Schreiber, Clapp and Alda, with Schreiber taking home the prize. The production also won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.

A second Broadway revival in 2012, directed by Daniel Sullivan played the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The production starred Al Pacino (who had played Roma in the 1992 film) as Levene, Bobby Cannavale as Roma, David Harbour as Williamson, John C. McGinley as Moss, Jeremy Shamos as Lingk, Richard Schiff as Aaronow and Murphy Guyer as Baylen.

A film adaptation released in 1992 starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey and Jonathan Pryce.
