Oleanna To Offer Audience Talk Back

That's right theatre fans. This is your chance for your voice to finally be heard. It was just announced today that the new Broadway revival of David Mamet's Oleanna will offer a series of talkbacks for all preview performances. The show which will star Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles will begin previews at the John Golden Theatre on September 29. An official opening is set for October 11. The show according to it's official website,"Focuses on the relationship between an intimidating university professor on the verge of obtaining tenure, and a timid female student who is having difficulty with the concepts in his classroom. Neither one are who or what they seem, and in the end, an act of sexual harassment may or may not occur. Oleanna is often described as Mamet's attack on political correctness"

Sounds interesting to me. As with most Mamet plays expect lots of drama and profanity. Leave the kids at home for this one. Now for those of you who can't get enough David Mamet his newest play Race is set to begin previews on November 17 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. This new play which is also directed by Mr. Mamet stars James Spader,David Alan Grier,Kerry Washington, and Richard Thomas.

This will mark the second year in a row with two Mamet plays on the Great White Way at the same time. Does this man ever sleep? Until next time theatre fans.
