RACE by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, opened last night, September 7, 2014, at the Center Theatre Group/Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. Performances run through September 28. BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening night festivities below!

Directed by longtime Mamet collaborator Scott Zigler, RACE features acclaimed stage and screen actors Chris Bauer ("True Blood," "The Wire," Broadway's "A Streetcar Named Desire"), Dominic Hoffman (Mamet's world premiere of "Faustus"), Jonno Roberts (Broadway's "Take Me Out") and DeWanda Wise (ABC's "Firelight").

RACE has set design by Jeffery P. Eisenmann, costume design by Leah Piehl and lighting design by Josh Epstein. Casting is by Mark B. Simon, CSA, and the production stage manager is Kirsten Parker.

Mamet tackles America's most controversial subject in this provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. In RACE, two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with sexually assaulting a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface.

Tickets for RACE are available at www.CenterTheatreGroup.org, the CTG box office located at the Ahmanson Theatre, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre box office starting two hours before curtain or by calling (213) 628-2772.
