Al Pacino Back to Broadway
Oscar- and Tony-winning actor Al Pacino will return to Broadway next year in the world premiere of “China Doll,” a new play by David Mamet, its producers said on Thursday.
The play, which Mamet wrote for Pacino, will begin performances in October 2015, according to producers Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Steve Traxler.
“For me over the years the relationship and the collaboration with David Mamet has been one of the richest and most rewarding,” Pacino said in a statement.
Pacino, 74, won an Academy Award for “Scent of a Woman” and picked up Tonys for “The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel” and “Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?”
He last appeared on Broadway in another Mamet play, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning drama “Glengarry Glen Ross,” which ended its limited run in 2013.
