David Mamet's Play Is First Casualty of 2010-11 Broadway Season
The Patrick Stewart-T.R. Knight starrer, Life in the Theater, will close Nov. 28. -- five weeks ahead of schedule.
David Mamet's Life in the Theater is the first casualty of the 2010-11 Broadway season.
The T.R. Knight and Patrick Stewart starrer will close on Nov. 25, five weeks ahead of schedule, Broadway.com reports. Ticket sales have been weak since performances began on Sept. 21.
The Neil Pepe-helmed show, an early Mamet work from 1977, chronicles the relationship between a veteran stage actor (played by Stewart) and a newbie (played by the former Grey's Anatomy star).
In 2009, Knight, who has been nominated for an Emmy, starred in Parade at the Mark Taper Forum, directed by Rob Ashford.
Mamet's last play, Oleanna, also closed earlier than planned, The New York Times notes.
