Mark HorningPendleton alone merits this production a must-see accolade. But considering all the other ample qualities of Beck's dramatic tragedy "Glengarry Glen Ross," to miss it would be the bigger tragedy by far.
Shady business deals, foul language, backstabbing, crime and just plain nastiness combine in this excellent production that shows how far men will go to succeed. This classic tale of greed and double dealing is a great morality play to experience. See this for the drama.
Watching the characters con, lie and trick each other in the Beck Center’s Glengarry Glen Ross reminded me of the truth embedded in Shakespeare’s catchy phrase about lust: “an expanse of spirit in a waste of shame.” David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning (1984) work portrays a toxic blend of lust (for money), vanity and a “mine is bigger than yours” business culture. It offers a perfect illustration of the myriad ways humans can betray each other. Bummer.
