David Mamet's American Buffalo To Return To Broadway In 2020

Image result for american buffalo play logoLet's see now. A brand new revival of American Buffalo by David Mamet, starring Tony Award winner Laurence Fishburn and Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell. Well I'm sold. The show, which first premiered on Broadway in 1977, takes place over a period of one day in a run down junk shop in Chicago.

Donny (Laurence Fishburn), who owns the junk shop, has recently sold a buffalo nickel to a customer for ninety dollars. Not bad for 1975. The only problem is that the coin may be worth a whole lot more. So what does he do? He cons his young employee Bobby, and his poker buddy Teach (Sam Rockwell) into helping him get in back.

Now I'll admit I was a little underwhelmed by the 2008 production. That one starred John Leguizamo, Cedric The Entertainer, and Haley Joel Osment and closed after twenty previews and eight performances.Not exactly a hit theatre fans.Here's hoping this new production fares a little better. Directed by Neil Pepe, American Buffalo is scheduled to begin previews in March 2020, with opening night set for April 14. As of now, no theatre or on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.
