Glengarry Glen Ross
The Cooper Union (7 E. 7th St., Manhattan)
$10 suggested donation
As part of My Senior show, I am directing an experimental staging/filming of David Mamet’s famous play. We are incorporating both theatrical and cinematic techniques to provide a unique experience for the audience and performers involved, attempting to use the popularity and canonical storyline of Glengarry as a template for deconstructing the mechanics of theater and the conventions of cinema. the results will be something we can promise no one has seen before, and I encourage everyone to come to the Cooper Union for a great evening of entertainment and exploration!
The piece will be performed at the historic Great Hall in the Cooper Union’s foundation building. The space was a platform for revolutionary voices such as President Lincoln, President Obama, Frederick Douglas, Mark Twain, Norman Mailer, Anna Devere Smith, and Joseph Campbell. Continuing in their progressive spirit, the goal of this performance is to find how two mediums can collaborate and engage one another in a context of change both artistically and politically.
This is a FREE EVENT, however we will be asking for suggested donations of $10 towards the Emilie Gossiaux fund, she is a student here at the Cooper Union who is in the hospital recovering from a tragic car accident on her bicycle this past fall.
