American Buffalo Chicago
In the American Theatre company production under the direction of Mike Nussbaum and Brian Russell, Donny is the play's center, and John Mohrlein, under their direction, brings to the role a much different interpretation than the Broadway production's. Its conception of Donny is this Chicago production's major weakness.
Atlantic Theatre Mamet Season
The Atlantic Theater Company in New York grew out of workshops taught by David Mamet and William H. Macy, so it is fitting that Mamet's plays should have comprised their celebratory fifteenth season. These much anticipated productions—who should know better how to do Mamet plays, right¿—turned out, in fact, to be disappointing, erring on the side of realism, lacking the torque, that edge of theatrical excitement, and making one wonder if these plays really do hold up in performance, although many of us know how satisfying they are to teach.
