LA Theater Review
Glengarry Glen Ross
Alas, the cast members are otherwise interchangeable. Not even hotshot sales ace Roma stands out; Nicole Wessel's perm and bright yellow coat are stylish but not aggressively flashy—just like Wessel's performance. Mamet's story is especially relevant today with respect to our current economic downturn and weak housing market, making the sales staff's plight all the more poignant. Krinke needs to amp things up to achieve more tension and the fever pitch of the strong devouring the weak. His boiler room–office set aptly bespeaks "the '70s," with one original touch: Its curved proscenium depicts squares on a Monopoly board, with the "Go to Jail" square at the pinnacle—a visual counterpart to the play's second half.
Presented by and at Stages Theatre, 400 E. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton. May 22–June 27. Fri., 8 p.m.; Sat., 6 and 8:30 p.m.; Sun., 6 p.m. (714) 525-4484. www.stagesoc.org.
