Pacino set for Mamet’s ‘Glengarry’

Broadway play is return for actor, producers

Al Pacino has confirmed a toplining stint in David Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross,” readying for a Broadway revival that opens at the Schoenfeld Theater in the fall.

Gig is a return to “Glengarry” for Pacino, who played real estate agent Ricky Roma in the 1992 film version. Onstage he’ll portray Shelly Levine, the older agent Jack Lemmon played in the movie.

Role will mark Pacino’s return to Broadway after the thesp cemented his box office power with “The Merchant of Venice,” the 2010 Broadway transfer of the Public Theater’s well-received Shakespeare in the Park production. Show grossed more than $1 million a week for the majority of its limited run.

Daniel Sullivan (“The Columnist,” “Rabbit Hole”), the director of “Merchant,” will helm “Glengarry,” produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel (both “Merchant” backers) alongside Jam Theatricals.

Producing team also has a history with the Mamet title. The group produced the 2005 Rialto staging that starred Liev Schreiber and Alan Alda and scored Tonys for play revival and for lead actor Schreiber. The same producers were behind subsequent Broadway outings of Mamet shows “November,” “Speed-the-Plow,” “Race” and the upcoming new play “The Anarchist,” which, like “Glengarry,” opens in the fall.

Creative team includes set designer Eugene Lee (“Wicked”) and costume designer Jess Goldstein (“Newsies,” “Merchant of Venice”).

The current tenant at the Schoenfeld Theater, “The Best Man,” is due to shutter Sept. 9. “Glengarry” begins previews Oct. 16 ahead of a Nov. 11 opening.
