Darren Criss Returns To Broadway This Spring In 'American Buffalo'

This is not a drill! Darren Criss will return to Broadway to star alongside Laurence Fishburne and Sam Rockwell in the Broadway revival of David Mamet’s American Buffalo.

Performances are set to begin on March 24, 2020 with an official opening on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at the Circle in the Square Theatre.

From the official release:

Three small-time hustlers want a bigger cut of the American dream. David Mamet’s classic about loyalty and greed stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy winner Laurence Fishburne (Thurgood, "The Matrix"), Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell ("Three Billboards,"Fool For Love), 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: crime and business are two sides of the same coin.

American Buffalo premiered on Broadway in 1977 and received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best American Play. It went on to be nominated for the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play for the 1983 production and a film version of the acclaimed work was released in 1996.
