Two-time Tony nominee Amy Morton (August: Osage County, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) will direct a Broadway revival of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning Glengarry Glen Ross, featuring an all-female cast.
Performances will begin on Broadway in May 2019. Exact dates, the full design team, theatre, and casting will be announced at a later date.
Glengarry Glen Ross is set in a cutthroat Chicago real estate office where four salespeople compete to sell mostly worthless properties to unwitting customers. Whoever sells the most wins a car; whoever sells the least is out of a job.
Morton is an actor, director, and ensemble member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. Her most recent New York directing credit was Guards at the Taj at the Atlantic Theater Company in 2015. Directing credits at Steppenwolf include The Way West, Penelope, Clybourne Park, and American Buffalo (also at McCarter Theatre), as well as Glengarry Glen Ross (which she also helmed in Dublin and Toronto).
As an actor, she has appeared in more than 30 productions at Steppenwolf and earned Tony and Drama Desk nominations for her performances in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and August: Osage County on Broadway.
The producing team is headed by Jeffrey Richards, Will Trice, Rebecca Gold, and Steve Traxler.
Glengarry Glen Ross debuted on Broadway in 1984, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play was most recently revived on Broadway in 2012 with a cast headed by Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale. Check out photos from the revival below:
