Spotlight On: Glengarry Glen Ross

Al Pacino headlined in a new staging of the David Mamet drama set in the jungle of a real-estate office.

The stakes are high at a fly-by-night Chicago real estate office: 1st prize—a new Cadillac; 2nd prize—a set of steak knives; 3rd prize—you’re fired! Al Pacino played down-on-his-luck salesman Shelly Levene, joined by Bobby Cannavale as Richard “Ricky” Roma. David Mamet’s drama slices to the core of the American dream and exposes the depths people will go to stay on top of the game. There is no room for losers in this office, and only "closers" will get the good Glengarry sales leads. They're learning first hand that in business, someone always has to pay.
