"Romance, David Mamet's screwball evisceration of the legal and personal codes that keep us afloat, makes a great amount of noise, some of it scandalously amusing. But rather than take aim at any specific target, Mamet and director Neil Pepe spray the Atlantic Theater's stage with conceptual buckshot. Everything gets hit, and none of it is lethal." - --Eric Grode Broadway.com
David Mamet was born in Chicago in 1947. He studied at Goddard College in Vermont and at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater in New York. He has taught at Goddard College, the Yale School of Drama, and New York University, and lectures at the Atlantic Theater Company, of which he is a founding member. He is the author of the plays The Cryptogram, Oleanna, Speed-the-Plow, Glengarry Glen Ross, American Buffalo, and Sexual Perversity in Chicago. He has also written screenplays for such films as House of Games and the Oscar-nominated The Verdict, as well as The Spanish Prisoner, The Winslow Boy, and Wag the Dog. His plays have won the Pulitzer Prize and the Obie Award. As a playwright, he received Tony nominations for Glengarry Glen Ross (1984) and Speed-the-Plow (1988). As a screenwriter, he received Oscar nominations for The Verdict (1982) and Wag the Dog (1997). His recent books include "The Old Religion" (1997), a novel about the lynching of Leo Frank; "Five Cities of Refuge: Weekly Reflections on Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy" (2004), a Torah commentary, with Rabbi Lawrence Kushner; and "The Wicked Son" (2006), a study of Jewish self-hatred and anti-Semitism, and "Bambi vs. Godzilla" an acerbic commentary on the movie business.See all Editorial Reviews
