LAKEWOOD PLAYHOUSE DOES ‘GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS’

For the first time, Lakewood Playhouse mounts the 1984 Pulitzer- and Oliver-winning play by David Mamet, “Glengarry Glen Ross.” Directed by Lakewood’s managing director John Munn, it’s the tale of what four desperate Chicago real estate agents will do to sell undesirable property. It was a London and Broadway hit, but maybe don’t take the kids (the 1992 film was rated R for language). The show opens at 8 p.m. Friday (Jan. 9), then runs 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays through Feb. 1. Tickets are $25 adults; $22 military; $21 seniors; $19 students and educators. The playhouse is at 5729 Lakewood Towne Center Blvd, Lakewood. 253-588-0042, lakewoodplayhouse.org.
