RLTP to Tackle Ethics in Real Estate with David Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP) continues its 2017-2018 season with 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet.
Glengarry Glen Ross will star RLTP Ensemble members David C. Mitchell, Matt Witten, and Dave Hayes as well as Steve Brachmann, David Marciniak, Patrick Moltane and Michael Dugan under the direction of Scott Behrend.
Production team includes Dyan Burlingame (set design), John Rickus (light design), Maura Simmonds Price (costume/props) and Katie Menke (sound design).
What is the worth of a man? David Mamet turns Death of a Salesman into The Hunger Games of Chicago real estate: 1st Prize-a Cadillac, 2nd Prize-a set of steak knives, 3rd Prize-you're fired! A masterpiece of modern American drama, this fast-paced, scalding tragedy is as tense, tight, and devastatingly hilarious as the day it was written. See what extreme four real estate agents will go to, from lies and flattery to bribery, threats, intimidation and burglary, to close the deal. RLTP's peerless ensemble delivers a production that seems uniquely relevant in 2017...
Glengarry Glen Ross was adapted later for the big screen by David Mamet and made its film premiere on October 2, 1992 at the 49th Venice Film Festival starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris and Kevin Spacey. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the film version.
