Sir Patrick Stewart has one of the two roles in A Life in the Theater, a David Mamet play which will open on Broadway this autumn.
A Life in the Theater is the story of life in the footlights from the point of view of two actors, Robert and John, and their relationship.
A Life in the Theater will be directed by Neil Pepe, artistic director of the Atlantic Theater Company.
Stewart is no stranger to the role of Robert, having played him once before, in 2005 at London’s Apollo Theater.
Rehearsals for the play will begin August 23 and it will probably open in September.
