Arrive promptly. Late comers are escorted to the business office, given a chair and then view a monitor until entering at intermission. I learned this the hard way!

This was close to being a really good performance. The scenes where the actors worked well together on their lines and dialog were excellent. But not every scene meshed. Still a preview night, so I expect things to improve.

James Carpenter is absolutely terrific as Teach but the two other actors in the play seemed to not get the memo that this is Mamet. Don't get me wrong, both Rafael Jordan and Paul Vincent O'Connor gave solid performances but the problem was that...continued

The actors gave intense performances, but for me 'American Buffalo' was kind of Seinfeldian...a play about nothing.
