Felicity Huffman, Ed Begley Jr. and Rod McLachlan star in David Mamet's broad political comedy November, which will officially opened Oct. 7 at the Mark Taper Forum.
Begley Jr. ("St. Elsewhere," "Pineapple Express") stars as Charles Smith, a U.S. President seeking re-election, with Huffman ("Transamerica," "Desperate Housewives") as his speechwriter, Clarice Bernstein. McLachlan portrays the president's chief of staff.
November will run through Nov. 4 under the direction of Scott Zigler, who staged Mamet's The Old Neighborhood on Broadway.
"Set just days before a major presidential election," original Broadway press notes state, "November involves civil marriages, gambling casinos, lesbians, American Indians, presidential libraries, questionable pardons and campaign contributions."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
