Close the week with a Glengarry Glen Ross double feature
This weekend, AU's Department of Performing Arts will be putting on Glengarry Glen Ross, the Pulitzer-winning 1984 play about cutthroat businessmen in a race for the top. AU's production is putting a twist on the classic with an all-female cast rather than the typical male ensemble. Tickets are available through Tix.com.
The name Glengarry Glen Ross might sound familiar even if you aren't a theater person. You've probably heard of the 1992 film adaptation starring Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, and Al Pacino. If your weekend plans involve going to Katzen, the film is essential viewing for comparison with AU's version.
As of this posting, Glengarry Glen Ross (HU DVD 1675) is still available. Come and get it while it's still [expletive deleted] here.
