Mamet’s Race Comes to NYC!

Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet brings his explosive drama to the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Performances opened in November of 2009 and are scheduled to run through August 2010. Race tells the story of three lawyers in a firm, two black and one white, who must decide whether to defend a white man charged with a crime against a black woman. James Spader and this year’s Tony nominated actor, David Alan Grier are currently starring in the production until mid-June.

This provocative new play will leave the audience making their own judgment about this case which is hardly open and shut, and they are sure to be thinking about it and discussing it long after they leave the theater. Shame, guilt, class, sex, lies and, of course, race, are all mixed together in this fast-paced show. Mamet is a master at quick banter as evident in his other work Glengarry Glen Ross, and this show brings out the playwright in his truest form. Race pushes the envelope and allows the audience to debate the outcome. According to Mamet, “It is a play about lies. All drama is about lies. When the lie is exposed, the play is over."

The play is under the direction of Mamet and the playwright recently wrote in an essay about his work, “Race, like sex, is a subject on which it is near impossible to tell the truth.” The cast is a revolving one that includes several big names including Spader and Grier. If you’re looking to see a particular actor, the schedule is as follows, James Spader (thru 6/20), Eddie Izzard (begins 6/21), David Alan Grier (thru 6/13), Dennis Haysbert (begins 6/21), Kerry Washington (thru 6/13), Afton C. Williamson (begins 6/14) and Richard Thomas (will be the only original cast member to remain with the production until it closes). Thomas is best known for his long running role as John-Boy Walton on the CBS television series The Waltons.

If you’re a fan of Mamet’s other plays (American Buffalo, Speed-the-Plow and Olenna) than this is a must see production. It’s intriguing, provocative and thought provoking. This play is on a strictly limited engagement and is set to close on August 21, 2010. Come see why the New York Times called the play, “Scalpel-Edged intelligence.” If there is one show you must see this season, then getting Race Broadway tickets is it.
