  The Story
  A Life In The Theatre Broadway is a comedy based on the playwrights early work in
acting. It is a behind-the-scenes look at his experience of coming into the theatrical
arts, fighting for the spotlight and having to share not only the stage but the amenities.
Robert, played by Stewart, is an older and seemingly wiser thespian. John, played by
Knight, is the new kid on the block, a hopeful actor from the up-and-coming
generation. Their working and personal relationship start off on the right foot. John
admires Robert and looks up to him for guidance as a mentor. As the play progresses
through, John eventually finds flaws in not only Robert's acting chops but in his
teaching. As the two become involved in a few different productions together their
feelings towards one another gradually begin to turn.
  Mamet is well respected for his writing style, especially in dialogue. Critics admire
is unique use of overlapping, constant interruption and sentences, which fizzle out
before being finished to having deemed the term "Mamet speak." The cynical and
jittery writing style creates a characteristic effect, one which is present in this revival
most notably the use of his two-part harmony. With A Life In The Theatre Broadway
tickets for the premiere the audiences will be treated to seeing the fresh life which he
brings to the stage.

Mamet's Speed-The-Plow last season. The production team includes Jeffrey Richards,
