Race on Broadway
David Mamet's latest play, with the punchy and provocative title of Race, comes to Broadway in a production directed by the playwright himself. James Spader (Boston Legal), David Alan Grier (In Living Color, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum on Broadway), Kerry Washington (Ray), and Richard Thomas (The Waltons) star. Mamet, one of America's most esteemed writers, has been recently represented on Broadway by numerous productions of his work, including revivals of American Buffalo, Speed-the-Plow, and Oleanna. His most recent original play to hit Broadway was November starring Nathan Lane.

Race is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
The title says it all in the latest play by great American playwright David Mamet: Race is about racial issues and undoubtedly Mamet will bring his own unique voice and wicked sense of humor to the subject. More specifically, Race concerns a law firm (in which two of the lawyers are black and one is white) that has to decide if it wants to take on a case that would have them defending a white man charged with a crime against a young black woman.

Summary A law firm takes on a racially charged case in this hard-edged new Broadway play written and directed by David Mamet. James Spader and David Alan Grier play law partners, with Kerry Washington as their young associate and Richard Thomas as the famous client charged with the rape of a black woman.
Age May be inappropriate for children 12 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Race is an engaging play with a very good cast, and Mamet has some interesting observations about the subject matter. But the drama ultimately does little more than serve as an overview of the current state of racial relations (as per the cynical Mamet), without really offering much of anything new on the topic.
