A Life In The Theatre

By David Mamet

January 13 – February 1, 2015
Independence Studio on 3 Production History

The title says it all! It's A Life in the Theatre. In this behind-the-scenes comedy, Robert, an older experienced performer and John, a newcomer to the stage, share both a dressing room and the spotlight. The play gives us a glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from one generation to the next – a passing that wavers from love and mutual respect to impatience and resentment. Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet's A Life in the Theatre is a delightful theatrical experience for anyone who loves the world of Broadway.
