Directed by Amy Morton, the production will continue through March 28.

The cast boasts Pulitzer Prize and Tony winning-playwright Tracy Letts, who penned August: Osage County, which featured Morton. The cast also features John Judd and Patrick Andrews.

"In this story of a penetrating battle of friendship versus business," press notes state, "loyalty is tested as three small-time crooks plot the midnight robbery of a buffalo nickel. A biting critique of capitalism and inflated valuation from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, American Buffalo is a menacing, humorous and philosophical masterpiece."

Tickets can be reserved by phone (609) 258-2787; toll-free at (888) 278-7932; online at www.mccarter.org; or at the McCarter Theatre Ticket Office at 91 University Place, Princeton, NJ.
