OVERVIEW

Olivier Award winner PATRICK STEWART and Emmy® Award nominee T.R. KNIGHT (Grey’s Anatomy) shared the passion, pleasures and pitfalls of the theatre in David Mamet’s funny and theatrical behind-the-scenes take on what really happens backstage!

A hilarious and heartfelt look at two actors battling to share a dressing room and the spotlight, A LIFE IN THE THEATRE, directed by Neil Pepe, was a must-see experience. From rehearsals to reprisals, from ego trips to acting tips, this inside and often outrageous look at the world of show business came to Broadway for a limited run.
