West Palm Beach's only resident professional theatre, Palm Beach Dramaworks, will continue its 10th Anniversary season with "American Buffalo," the classic American play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, on Friday, February 19th (8PM) at their intimate downtown theatre (322 Banyan Boulevard). SpeciAl Priced preview performances are slated for February 17th & 18th (8PM) and the production will play through April 4th.

A skewed vision of the American dream is explored in David Mamet's "American Buffalo" where the arenas of friendship and business clash when three small time crooks, who fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise, are merely pawns caught up in their own game of dead-end, empty pipe dreams.

Producing Artistic Director William Hayes will direct the production featuring Dennis Creaghan and Matt Mueller.

Palm Beach Dramaworks is a non-profit, professional theatre and is a member of the Theatre Communications Group, the South Florida Theatre League, Southeastern Theatre Conference, Florida Professional Theatres Association, Florida Theatre Conference, and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council.

The performance times are Wednesday through Saturday at 8PM (with select Sunday performances at 7PM & Friday matinees at 3PM) and regular matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2PM.

Individual tickets are $44 for evening performances and $42 for matinees. Group rates for 20 or more, and discounted season subscriptions are also available.

The theatre is located in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach, at 322 Banyan Boulevard, between Dixie Highway and Olive Avenue, Florida 33401. Parking is offered across the street for a nominal fee, or in the City Garage on the corner of Olive Avenue and Banyan Boulevard for $1.00 per hour with the first hour free! For ticket information contact the box office at (561) 514-4042, open Tuesday through Saturday from 10AM to 4PM, or visit their website at
