News   PHOTO CALL: A Life in the Theatre Meet and Greet with Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight
 
A meet and greet was held for the Broadway premiere of David Mamet's 1977 two-actor play A Life in the Theatre, starring Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight, which will officially open at the Schoenfeld Theatre Oct. 12 for a limited 15-week engagement.

Neil Pepe, who directed the recent Broadway revival of Mamet's Speed-The-Plow, will stage the production that will begin previews Sept. 21. A Life in the Theatre will play a limited engagement through Jan. 2, 2011.

Knight, best known for his role on "Grey's Anatomy," will portray John opposite stage veteran Stewart (Macbeth) as Robert. Mamet's piece centers on a seasoned actor and his protégé.

Here's how the producers bill the play: "A behind-the-scenes peek at the challenge of actors battling to share both a dressing room and the spotlight, A Life in the Theatre follows two actors in a repertory company: Robert, an older, experienced performer and John, a newcomer to the stage. John at first welcomes Robert’s guidance, but soon overshadows his mentor. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, the play gives a glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from one generation to the next - a passing that wavers from love and mutual respect to impatience and resentment."

 

Here is a look at the meet and greet:
