David Alan Grier added to ‘Race’

Mamet play to bow on Broadway in fall

David Alan Grier has signed on to “Race,” the new play by David Mamet that bows on Broadway in the fall.

Thesp joins an ensemble that includes James Spader, Richard Thomas and Kerry Washington. Grier’s stage credits include the La Jolla Playhouse’s 2006 production of “The Wiz” and a stint in the 1996 Broadway revival of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.”

Plot of “Race” is being kept under wraps, although Grier and Spader are expected to play the two lawyers at the center of the play.

“Race,” like the scribe’s 2008 comedy “November” before it, will have its world preem on Broadway. Mamet — whose older work has recently been seen in Gotham revivals of “Speed-the-Plow” and “Glengarry Glen Ross” — makes his Main Stem directing debut with the show.

“Race” begins previews Nov. 16 ahead of a Dec. 6 opening at the Ethel Barrymore Theater.
