Glengarry Glen Ross follows the cutthroat world of real estate where salesmen are vying for the best leads to make the biggest sales. The play was produced on Broadway in 1984 under the direction of Gregory Mosher following London and Chicago runs. The drama earned playwright Mamet the Pulitzer Prize and Best Play Tony Award nomination that year and was later adapted by the scribe for the 1992 film.
The male ensemble who populate the story include Alan Alda (QED, "M*A*S*H") as Shelly Levene, Jeffrey Tambor (Sly Fox, "Arrested Development") as George Aaronow, Liev Schreiber (Henry V, "Scream") as Richard Roma, Gordon Clapp ("NYPD Blue," "Moonlight Mile") as Dave Moss, Tom Wopat (Annie Get Your Gun, "The Dukes of Hazzard") as James Lingk, Frederick Weller (Take Me Out, "The Shape of Things") as John Williamson and Jordan Lage (The Best Man, "The Spanish Prisoner") as the detective Baylen.
The design team of Glengarry Glen Ross will feature Santo Loquasto (sets), Laura Bauer (costumes) and Kenneth Posner (lighting).
The producing team includes Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, JAM Theatricals, Boyett Ostar Productions, Ronald Frankel, Philip Lacerte, Stephanie McClelland/CJM, Barry Weissbord, Zendog Productions in association with Herbert Goldsmith Productions by special arrangement with Roundabout Theatre Company.
