PHOTO CALL: A Life in the Theatre, With Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight, at the Schoenfeld

News   PHOTO CALL: A Life in the Theatre, With Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight, at the Schoenfeld The Broadway premiere of David Mamet's 1977 two-actor play A Life in the Theatre, starring Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight, began previews Sept. 21 and will officially open at the Schoenfeld Theatre Oct. 12 for a limited 15-week engagement.

The play is billed this way: "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's a look at the production:
