Photos: NOVEMBER Opens in LA - Starry Arrivals, Curtain Call and More!

David Mamet's comedy "November" is now playing at the Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum through November 4, 2012. Opening night was last night - check out photo coverage of the starry arrivals, curtain call and more below!
 
The Cast features Ed Begley, Jr., Felicity Huffman and Rod McLachlan, as well as Gregory Cruz and Todd Weeks. Watch a re-election campaign promo for November's 'Charles Smith' below!

Just in time for the 2012 election, "November," which is directed by Scott Zigler, takes place a few days before a presidential election and incumbent Charles Smith (played by Begley) is in for a rough month -- his campaign funds are running out, his poll numbers are "lower than Gandhi's cholesterol" and the sofa needs to be reupholstered. But although his speechwriter (Huffman) seems to have defected, his chief of staff (McLachlan) has all but given up and his wife is planning for her post-White House life, Charles isn't ready to throw in the towel quite yet.

With Mamet's characteristic no-holds-barred style, "November" is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of America today and the lengths to which people will go to win.

"November" features set design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Laura Bauer and lighting design by Josh Epstein. The production stage manager is Barclay Stiff.
