AMERICAN BUFFALO
at tba

A RARE GIFT
By Roger B. Harris
Published April 10 2008

  John Leguizamo

The fall Broadway revival of American Buffalo has wrapped up one of its stars. John Leguizamo will be in the David Mamet masterpiece, directed by Robert Falls, reports Variety.

The plot of American Buffalo revolves around the contemplated theft of a rare Buffalo nickel. The action takes place in a junk shop, where the three potential perps procrastinate and...procrastinate about doing the deed. The language employed by these characters is, to say the least, colorful and foul-mouthed.

The show's 1977 production, opened in February at the Barrymore, and closed in June of that year, after 122 regular performances. It starred Robert Duvall, John Savage and Kenneth McMillan. The 1983 revival opened in October at the Booth, and closed in February, 1984, after 104 performances. It starred Al Pacino, J.J. Johnston and James Hayden.

Leguizamo is no stranger to Broadway. He has appeared on The Great White Way in two one-handers, Freak and Sexaholic. Mamet's November, starring Nathan Lane, is currently on at the Barrymore. Falls won a Tony for the 1999 revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.
