David Mamet’s ‘The Anarchist’, Starring Patti LuPone and Debra Winger, to Close on Broadway

Anarchist-LuPone-WingerThat was fast.

After getting some awful reviews, producers announced last night that The Anarchist, the new play written and directed by David Mamet, will give its final performance on Sunday, December 16th.

The show, which began previews at the newly refurbished Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street) on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 and opened on Sunday, December 2nd, will have played 23 previews and 17 performances.

The production stars two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone, who previously appeared in Mamet’s The Woods, All Men are Whores, The Blue Hour, The Water Engine, Edmond and The Old Neighborhood; and three-time Academy Award nominee Debra Winger, whose previous stage credits include How I Learned to Drive and Ivanov at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts and The Exonerated in New York. Winger is making her Broadway debut in The Anarchist. 

In The Anarchist, LuPONE plays the title character and Winger plays a prison official —these actresses will make theatrical fireworks as one character, put away for life, wants out while the other wants to make sure she stays inside. This explosive new work by Mamet is about passion, redemption, deception, and revolution. Mamet, who brought a fierce sense of pace and excitement to the direction of his own Race, will once again be at the helm of the production.

Tickets can still be purchased at Telecharge.com, by calling (212) 239-6200, or at the box office of the Golden Theatre.
