David Mamet stages new ‘Race’

Broadway production to premiere in the fall

There’s more David Mamet ahead for Broadway as his latest play, “Race,” will receive its world preem on the Rialto in the fall.

Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Steve Traxler produce. The trio have made a habit of bringing the scribe’s work to Broadway, with a list of credits that includes the 2008 preem of Mamet’s “November,” as well as recent revivals of “Speed-the-Plow” and “Glengarry Glen Ross.”

Producers are keeping mum on the details of “Race,” including storyline and cast size. “The title is self-explanatory,” Richards said of the play’s subject matter.

It’s too soon for the production to have a theater nailed down, but the target timeline has rehearsals beginning in late October, with preview performances kicking off Nov. 20 ahead of a Dec. 10 opening.

Cast and director have yet to be determined.

Richards, Frankel and Traxler are having a busy season, with “Race” joining a roster that includes “Plow,” “You’re Welcome America: A Final Night With George W Bush” and yet-to-open offerings “Blithe Spirit” and “Reasons to Be Pretty.” Richards and Frankel also are aboard the previewing revival of “Hair.”

Mamet, meanwhile, has been a regular presence on the Rialto in recent years, with outings including “Glengarry,” “Plow,” “November” and this season’s short-lived revival of “American Buffalo.” A potential production of “Oleanna” has been discussed as well.
