Stage and screen star Austin Pendleton, most recently on Broadway in the Tony-nominated Choir Boy, will star in the Beck Center for the Arts’ upcoming production of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross, which begins previews September 12 prior to an official opening September 13 on the Mackey Theater stage.
William Roudebush will direct the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, about a group of real estate salesman who learn their jobs are on the line if they don't hit the desired sales numbers by the end of the week. Performances continue through October 6 in Lakewood, Ohio.
Pendleton (My Cousin Vinny, The Muppet Movie, Finding Nemo) will play Shelley “The Machine” Levene in a cast that also includes Andrew Gorell, Brian Pedaci, Chris Damico, Chris Bohan, Stuart Hoffman, and John Busser.
The production will also have scenic design by Cheri DeVol, lighting design by Trad A. Burns, costume design by Inda BlatchGeib, and sound design by Carlton Guc and Angie Hayes.
Meanwhile, a separate production of the play, directed by Amy Morton and featuring an all-female cast, is eyeing a Broadway bow later this season, though no confirmed word yet on dates or a theatre.
