The official opening of the Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross has been pushed from November 11 to December 8, following canceled rehearsals as a result of Hurricane Sandy, Playbill reports. The review release date for the Al Pacino-starring production of David Mamet’s Pulitzer-winning play is December 10, although the show has been in previews since October 19. Bloomberg notes that in the week ending October 28, Glengarry was “by far Broadway’s top-selling play,” grossing $1.1M. Lead producer Jeffrey Richards told Bloomberg rehearsals were “truncated” when some of the actors couldn’t make it to the theater in the wake of the superstorm. He also said the show isn’t ready to be “frozen” (the point at which no more changes will be made). Producers are extending the limited run through January 20 and have added additional performances. Bloomberg recently reported that Al Pacino is receiving a minimum of $125,000 a week and also is entitled to 5% of profits for the run of the drama. Pacino’s profit participation is contingent on the roughly $2.3M production paying back investors, according to documents obtained by Bloomberg in October. Should weekly ticket sales exceed $1.25M after deducting for commissions, Bloomberg said Pacino enjoys 10% of box office above that amount. Pacino is playing washed-up huckster Shelly Levene, a role played by Jack Lemmon in the 1993 film that garnered Pacino an Oscar nomination for the part of Ricky Roma. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan is directing the revival. John C. McGinley, David Harbour, Richard Schiff, Jeremy Shamos, Bobby Cannavale and Murphy Guyer also star. Cannavale is playing Roma.
