‘Speed-the-Plow’ cast is the cream of the crop

Posted by Kathy Lyford

Speed_plow_2Two of Season Pass’s favorite TV actors – “Entourage’s” Jeremy Piven and “Mad Men’s” Elisabeth Moss – are starring together in Broadway’s revival of “Speed-the-Plow,” David Mamet’s satirical dissection of Hollywood and the movie business. The three-hander also stars Raul Esparza.

Variety‘s crackerjack theater critic David Rooney gave high marks to the show, especially the cast. You can read his review here.

One good thing about cable’s shorter seasons is that the actors have time to spread their wings in other projects and ply their craft onstage. I don’t know who originated it, but there’s a saying about actors that film makes you famous and TV makes you rich, but theater makes you better.

Well, we already think Piven and Moss are pretty great. In fact, this casting has moved “Speed-the-Plow” right to the top of our Broadway must-see list.
