David Mamet’s classic about loyalty and greed stars Tony® Award winner Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, August Wilson’s Two Trains Running), Academy Award® winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards…, 2020 SAG Award winner for “Fosse/Verdon”), 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). AMERICAN BUFFALO returns to Broadway more explosive and pointed than ever, exposing a timely American truth: the hustle and the con are two sides of the same coin.

 

​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.” Writing in The New Yorker, John Lahr said, “David Mamet belongs in the pantheon of this century’s great dramatists… AMERICAN BUFFALO, is his masterpiece.”
