For the second year in a row, Broadway will feature an American play about the obsession over a valuable collectable.

I'm excited, but I would have preferred the Spacey/Goldblum SPEED THE PLOW in its place.

This should be a nice production, especially with Robert Falls attached.




Check it out here.

I wonder what theatre it'll play at...

Any speculation?

I was just Spring cleaning yesterday and donated my copy of this play to the Salvation Army (along with a box of other plays).

Would love to see Leguizamo back on Broadway.

I'm not too fond of the show although I do appreciate it somewhat. I don't see it finding an audience unless it becomes a "must-see" production.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Very happy to hear about that. I was living in Chicago at the time of the original and didn't catch the Pacino revival. Looking forward to it.

I saw Pacino do AMERICAN BUFFALO, on what must have been a bad day. He just completely walked through it, shrugging and mugging and shouting when necessary. I'd be interested in seeing it again.

I thought I had read previously that a prodution of Speed-the-Plow was coming soon, but not the Spacey-Goldblum version because Mamet had promised a friend from Atlantic that he could direct it.
