The Broadway Revival of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ welcomes Bobby Cannavale

The fall 2012 Broadway revival of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross just got a whole lot cooler.

The show, a tale of cutthroat politics at a Chicago real estate firm circa 1969, will feature Emmy award winner and two-time Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale.

The play was written 30 years ago and premiered at the Royal National Theatre in London. This production will be directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan. In addition to Cannavale in the role of Richard “Ricky” Roma, the production will star two-time Tony winner Al Pacino.

Cannavale received the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Play and a Tony nomination for his performance in “The Motherf**cker with the Hat.” He has been seen on television in “Nurse Jackie,” “Modern Family,” “Will & Grace,” “Six Feet Under” and “Cupid,” in which he starred. This summer, he is working with Woody Allen on an untitled project.

The show will begin rehearsals this fall with previews beginning Tuesday, Oct. 16 and an official opening date set for Sunday, Nov. 11 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street).
