We are now approaching the final week of Glengarry Glen Ross showing at the Playhouse Theatre and if you haven’t seen this one, I would highly recommend it.
This isn’t a review of the show as I think that my opinion may be slightly bias with the number of times I have seen it.
For those of you not familiar with the show here is a little bit about it: The real estate industry can be brutal. In a tiny office in Chicago four salesmen are becoming increasingly desperate to secure leads and earn their commission. So desperate in fact they would do anything to make it happen. Everyone has the same goal: close the deal.
This is a fast pace show which takes drastic turns. I love listening to the audience’s reactions.
Considering I watch it practically every night I still laugh at the witty script. It is so quick. If I am completely honest the script won’t be for everyone. There is strong language throughout and some use of the ‘C’ word. This aside the cast are fabulous and keep it fresh and engaging. I absolutely love the chemistry on stage. Especially the way in which Stanley Townsend (Shelly Levene) and Christian Slater (Ricky Roma) bounce off of each other during act 2.
This is definitely one to see before the show closes on February 3rd. Tickets and information about the show can be found here: http://www.atgtickets.com/shows/glengarry-glen-ross/playhouse-theatre/#showinfotabs=showtimes
