American Buffalo to Open Spring 2022 with Originally Announced Stars

This revival will finally take its first bow! After a run being delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, American Buffalo will officially open on Broadway at the Circle in the Square Theatre on April 14, 2022, exactly two years after it was originally scheduled to open.

The Broadway revival of the David Mamet play will star Emmy and Tony Award winner Laurence Fishburne, Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Sam Rockwell, and Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Darren Criss, who were all slated to star in the originally planned 2020 production. Directed by Neil Pepe, American Buffalo will begin previews on March 22, 2022, running for a strictly limited 16-week engagement.

Tickets are now on sale.

American Buffalo premiered on Broadway in 1977, received the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best American Play and officially established David Mamet as one of the major new playwrights of the second half of the 20th century. It went on to be nominated for the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play for the 1983 production. The play was subsequently revived off-Broadway in 1981, on Broadway in 1983, and off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theatre Company in 2000.

The creative team for the production includes Scott Pask (Set Design), Dede Ayite (Costume Design), Tyler Micoleau (Lighting Design) and Telsey + Company (Casting).

Three small time hustlers want a bigger cut of the American dream. David Mamet’s classic about loyalty and greed returns to Broadway more explosive and pointed than ever, exposing a timely American truth: crime and business are two sides of the same coin.
