A Life in the Theatre

Broadway Play - Comedy Play - Drama — 

Tony®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek, Macbeth) joins Emmy Award nominee T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy, Noises Off) in Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet's loving and laugh-filled look at the state of the arts -- A Life in the Theatre.

A behind-the-scenes peek at the challenge of actors battling to share both a dressing room and the spotlight, A Life in the Theatre follows two actors in a repertory company: Robert, an older, experienced performer and John, a newcomer to the stage. John at first welcomes Robert’s guidance, but soon overshadows his mentor. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, the play gives a glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from one generation to the next - a passing that wavers from love and mutual respect to impatience and resentment. It's a delightful theatrical experience for anyone who loves the world of Broadway.
