American Buffalo returns to Broadway more explosive and pointed than ever, exposing a timely American truth: crime and business are two sides of the same coin.
Three small-time hustlers want a bigger cut of the American dream. David Mamet’s classic about loyalty and greed stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® winner Laurence Fishburne (Thurgood, The Matrix), Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards, Fool For Love), and Emmy® winner Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Hedwig), under the direction of Neil Pepe (Tony®-winning Artistic Director of Atlantic Theater Company).
Ben Brantley of The New York Times hails it as, “David Mamet’s most affecting and gripping play,” and Frank Rich of The New York Times declares, “American Buffalo is one of the best American plays of the last decade.”
