Curtain Call to stage all-female version of Glengarry Glenn Ross

October 5, 2016 GMT

STAMFORD — An all-female production of the testosterone-driven classic Glengarry Glenn Ross is showing later this month at the Dressing Room Theatre.

The play is presented by Curtain Call, a local nonprofit, community-based theater company.

“Due to the huge pool of amazingly talented females in the area, I’m always looking for great vehicles to showcase them, so this was one way of doing that,” Lou Ursone, Curtain Call’s executive director, said in a statement.

Directed by Julie Bell Petrak, the play follows four salty Chicago real estate agents over the course of two days as they attempt to sell undesirable real estate, by any means necessary, to unwitting prospective buyers. Aside from the all-female cast, Curtain Call’s production follows David Mamet’s original Pulitzer Prize-winning play closely, including the use of its raw, profane dialogue.

The fast-paced, 85-minute play will be presented without intermission.

Glengarry Glen Ross will play in The Dressing Room Theatre Oct. 20 through Nov. 6, evenings at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. Regular prices are $32 for adults, $25 for senior citizens and $16 for students and children. On Thursday evenings in October, all seats are $25.
