Even More Mamet: 'Oleanna' Headed to Broadway

How much David Mamet can a single theater season accommodate? In addition to his coming pair of one-act plays at the Atlantic Theater Company and the Broadway debut of his new play, "Race," Mr. Mamet's play "Oleanna" will be revived on Broadway in the fall. The production, which is transferring from the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, stars Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles as a college professor and a student who accuses him of sexual harassment. In a news release, publicists for the Broadway production said that it would run at the Golden Theater, with previews to begin on Sept. 29 and an official opening scheduled for Oct. 11. It will be directed by Doug Hughes ("A Man for All Seasons"), who directed the Los Angeles production, and produced by Jeffrey Finn. This is the first time that "Oleanna" will be performed on Broadway, as well as Ms. Stiles's Broadway debut.

    I think Bill pullman is a wonderful actor. And I am very glad Oleanna is coming to New York since the big apple is much closer to Maryland where I live tthan Los Aneles
