Theatre Baton Rouge’s production of Glengarry Glen Ross opens this Friday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., the first shows of its 7-day run.
Directed by Bill Martin and based on the 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by David Mamet, this dark comedy depicts two days in the lives of four cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to peddle sub-par plots of land—often through unethical practices—to reluctant buyers. Awash in lies and shallow flattery, bribery and threats, the play examines with bleak humor the corruption of competitive business.
Turned into a successful 1992 film starring Al Pacino and Alec Baldwin, the show is rated R for more mature audiences. Keep in mind that a special Parents Night Out performance will be held Feb. 20., when children aged 5 to 15 can be placed be under the watch of company volunteers and Young Actors Program members while parents enjoy the show.
