GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (play)
CONTAINS VERY STRONG LANGUAGE. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN OR THE EASILY
Ends 3rd February
Chicago Real Estate Sales, end of the month. One man wins a car, one
wins steak-knives, the other two lose thier jobs.
High stakes, the classic David Mamet play is revived with Christian
Slater, Robert Glenister, Kris Marshall, Stanley Townsend and Don
Not available. Professional reviewers are mixed on this one. There is
universal approval for keeping the production firmly "in period," and for the
set design. There is agreement too that the 34 year old script more than stands
up, its sentiments all too relevant today.
The cast are also praised, with
Kris Marshall's icy manager applauded, and Slater's ego and partnership with
Townsend considered particularly successful. Glenister's rage and Warrington's
quiet are felt equally effective.
Dissent is in the direction, with some
feeling it doesn't dig deep enough, others holding that the play moves fine but
energy falls due to the interval and takes a little time to pick up again.
Still, a worthwhile revival, is the overall verdict.
