Race To Begin Performances Tonight.

Let the F Bombs begin. David Mamet's newest work Race will make it's official Broadway debut tonight at the Barrymore Theatre. The show which is also being directed by Mr. Mamet stars stars Emmy Award winner James Spader (Boston Legal, Sex, Lies and Videotape),Tony nominee and television star David Alan Grier (A Soldier’s Story, In Living Color,Kerry Washington(Ray, Lakeview Terrace) and Richard Thomas(TheWaltons,Democracy, Twelve Angry Men).

Speculation about the show has been running rampant ever since it was first announced a few months ago. Here is a quote about the show from Mr. Manet from the New York Times."In my play a firm made up of three lawyers, two black and one white, is offered the chance to defend a white man charged with a crime against a black young woman. It is a play about lies." He added: "All drama is about lies. When the lie is exposed, the play is over."

Sounds like it could be an interesting night in the theatre. I will be back next week to give you my full review of the show. Until next time theatre fans.
