1st Night Photos: Delay Doesn’t Stop Glen Partying

By • West End
Following a last-minute cast change and a two-day postponement of its press performance, the new West End revival of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross opened on Friday (12 October 2007, previews from 27 September) at the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, with the seven-strong all-male company headed by Jonathan Pryce and Aidan Gillen (See News, 31 Jul 2007).

In David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, five cut-throat Chicago real estate men are pitched against each other in a cut-throat competition. Close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you’re f...ed. In a world of high stakes and hard sell, these men will do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most.

Glengarry Glen Ross had its world premiere at the National Theatre in 1983 and was subsequently produced on Broadway and adapted, by Mamet, for a 1992 film starring Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Al Pacino and Alec Baldwin as well as Jonathan Pryce, who now takes on the part of luckless salesman Shelley Levene (played by Lemmon in the film). On stage, Aidan Gillen plays Richard Roma (Pacino on screen).

Also in the cast of James Macdonald’s new production, designed by Anthony Ward, are fellow salesmen Matthew Marsh (as Dave Moss) and Paul Freeman (George Aaronow), Peter McDonald (office manager John Williamson), Tom Smith (prospective buyer James Lingk, Pryce’s screen role) and Shane Attwooll (the police officer, Baylen).

For 1st Night Photos, our Whatsonstage.com photographer Dan Wooller was on hand for the Glengarry Glen Ross curtain call at the Apollo Theatre and the post-show party at Mint Leaf along with the company, director James Macdonald, producers Mark Rubinstein and Ron Kastner and other first night guests including violinist Linzi Stoppard, Irish novelist Edna O'Brien, actor Bill Paterson, designer Hildegard Bechtler and Eddie Redmayne, who appeared with Glengarry’s Pryce and Marsh in The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? at the Apollo three years ago.
