A LIFE IN THE THEATRE BROADWAY REVIEWS

Synopsis: Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight star in the Broadway premiere of David Mamet's A Life in the Theatre. Neil Pepe directs. Describing life in the footlights from an actor's point of view, A Life in the Theatre focuses on the relationship between two thespians: Robert, an older, experienced performer; and John, a relative newcomer. Though Robert's guidance is welcomed by John at first, as the play progresses Robert falters as an actor and mentor, and John emerges as a mature actor. Mamet was inspired to write A Life in the Theatre by what he had observed backstage as well as by his own experiences in his early career as an actor.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"The words delicate and David Mamet seldom appear in close proximity. Mr. Mamet, after all, is widely regarded as the macho man of American theater, a two-fisted dispenser of high-testosterone dialogue and ugly truths. As a playwright, he has never been a doily maker."

WALL STREET JOURNAL REVIEW:

"David Mamet is the most American of playwrights. Not only do his snarlingly competitive characters take a zero-sum view of human relationships, but they express it with words that fly through the air like bullets in search of a body."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

""A Life in the Theatre" is a rarity among David Mamet's works. Rather than the usual corrosive vitriol against venal real-estate salesmen, corrupt politicians, racist lawyers, or profit-mad Hollywood types, this two-hander is a sweet valentine to the theater."

VARIETY REVIEW:

"First you laugh your head off; then you open a vein. That's the way it usually goes whenever "A Life in the Theater," David Mamet's 1977 lethal toast to American stage actors, is revived. But the darkness descends early in Neil Pepe's staging of this backstage two-hander, which stars the stately Patrick Stewart as the veteran thespian who's seen, done and survived it all and the watchable T.R. Knight as the young actor he mentors. Although the laughs still land, the affection that softens the satire is undercut by the melancholy tone struck in the first moments of the show."

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"There's not much of substance in David Mamet's backstage comedy, A Life in the Theatre, now making its Broadway debut at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. However, stars Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight deliver brilliant comic performances in Neil Pepe's amusingly breezy production. "
