Mamet & Mahoney Find Romance in West End???
Date: 6 September 2005
The UK premiere production of David Mamet's Romance starts previews tonight so it may seem premature to be talking about transfers already, but certainly that’s the hope. All going to plan, and to positive reviews, the satirical courtroom farce will come into the West End once its Almeida season finishes on 22 October 2005, care of commercial producer Mark Rubinstein. In London, Mamet’s latest play, which had its world premiere this past February at Off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company, Frasier’s John Mahoney stars as the judge. The production is directed by Lindsay Posner, whose recent West End productions have included starry revivals of Mamet’s Sexual Perversity in Chicago (with Matthew Perry and Minnie Driver), Oleanna (Aaron Eckhart and Julia Stiles) and, earlier this year, A Life in the Theatre (Patrick Stewart and Joshua Jackson). The Almeida’s recent transfers have included Hedda Gabler, Festen and Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?.
