Al Pacino Says 'Hello' To His Little Friends Broadway!

Al Pacino Glengarry Glen Ross Broadway

We ADORE this play!!

David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning Glengarry Glen Ross was a Broadway hit in the '80s before they adapted the dark, depressing story into a 1992 feature film.

Al Pacino starred in the movie, earning an Oscar nomination for his role as Ricky Roma — the slick and successful salesman at the top of the food chain.

And now Pacino wants to bring it back to the stage!!

This was a HUGE week for Broadway!

Thanksgiving brought tourists to NYC and sales on the Great White Way went through the roof.

Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark brought in $200,605 for its first preview performance on Sunday, but Wicked was the clear winner for the weekend. The show earned $2,150,665 this week, making it the top single-week total in Broadway history.

And every show in the top 10 pulled in over a million dollars! The Lion King ($1,870,565) broke a house record and Elf ($1,406,283) jumped up 63% from last week.

Not far behind was The Addams Family ($1,299,371), Promises, Promises ($1,077,802), Mary Poppins ($1,206,630), The Phantom of the Opera ($1,024,656) and The Merchant of Venice ($1,160,360).

Impressive. Did U go to NYC for Thankgiving?!

After performances in Central Park this summer, The Merchant of Venice is heading to the Broadhurst in October starring Al Pacino!

The Public Theater plans on 78 performances of the show with Pacino playing Shylock, the moneylender with a grudge. No word if his co-stars from The Shakespeare in the Park production will be joining him on Broadway including Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Sounds like a good show!
