Little Theatre Group Closes Season With Mamet Classic

May 21, 2010

For its 2009-2010 season closer, the Little Theatre Group presents “Glengarry Glen Ross,” the acclaimed 1984 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning drama by David Mamet. The play gained world renown with the 1992 film starring Jack Lemmon.

The play depicts two days in the lives of four real estate salesmen and how they become desperate when the corporate office sends a representative to “motivate” them by announcing that, in one week, all except the top two salesmen will be fired. There is no room for losers here; only “closers” will get the good sales leads.

Notorious for its use of strong language, the movie cast jokingly referred to the film as “Death of an Effin’ Salesman.” The actual title comes from the names of two of the real estate developments being peddled by the salesmen (GlengarryHighlands and Glen Ross Farms).

Directed by Tom Humes, the Little Theatre Group production of this black comedy stars Dennis Atkinson, Grady Bruce, Arnie Harrison, David Nissan, Ted Richfield, Larry Shaw, Harry Towne and Gary Zelman.

The show opens May 28 at San José’s LaurenceOliverTheater (Av. 2, Ca. 28) and runs through June 13. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. For reservations, call 8858-1446 or visit www.littletheatregroup.org. Note: strong language.
