David Mamet’s theatrical brand is so strong these days, with not one, but two of his titles appearing on Broadway in the last 4 of 9 seasons, sometimes I feel like he doesn’t even have to name his plays in order to sell them.
The phrase, “New David Mamet play!” is the only thing a lot of theatregoers need to hear to purchase a ticket. (Whatta ya say, David, want to call your next play Untitled and see what happens?)
Starring Debra Winger and Patti Lupone, The Anarchist (which we were honored to have rehearse at our studios), actually is about . . . “one women who is put away for life, and another who is committed to making her stay put.”
I mean, is that a Mamet blurb, or what?
So who wants to see it? Because I’ve got two tickets with a reader’s name on it.
Here’s how to win:
I’m predicting a huge turnout of this giveaway, and I’m also predicting a pretty big advance for The Anarchist, based on the Mamet brand.
What other playwrights have “star power” these days? Do any? Can a playwright sell tickets just on their own? If so, name that playwright!
Comment your answer below and you’ll be entered to win two tickets to The Anarchist on Broadway!
