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." Here's a look at the production's opening night:
