For a relatively new play it really seemed dated and somewhat cartoonish. There were many funny moments and dialogue but it was mostly a one note theme that would have been a better one act than a full play.
Quotes & Highlights
The big, explosive laughter that starts early in David Mamet’s November is of a kind I haven’t heard in decades. —The Village Voice
November gets my vote! Like an expert marksman in a shooting gallery, the playwright takes aim at just about every hot-button issue of the day, scoring a bull’s eye every time. —Backstage East
A hilarious, timely, decidedly un-Mamet-like laughfest. —Hollywood Reporter
Sublime! One of the first breezy and intelligent comedies of substance we’ve seen in a long time. --The Villager
Extremely funny. —The New York Times
A raucous new Mamet comedy. —The Times (London)
David Mamet’s fiendishly funny, over-the-top new comedy November, fresh from its smash-hit success on Broadway, offers no mercy in its satirical stab at American politics. Meet President Charles Smith, the most corrupt, inept buffoon ever to sit in the Oval Office. It’s the final days of his bid for a second term, but the country is a mess and his poll numbers are “lower than Gandhi’s cholesterol.” Toss in a lesbian speechwriter longing to marry her sweetheart on national television, a cynical chief of staff, Thanksgiving turkeys awaiting pardon, and enough shady backroom scheming to make even a Glengarry Glen Ross con man blush, and you’ve got a new Mamet masterpiece.
