WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

David Mamet's classic American comic drama American Buffalo centers on the bungled robbery of a rare and valuable American Buffalo nickel from a neighborhood collector. Directed by Tony Award winner Robert Falls and starring Tony Award nominee John Leguizamo, and in their Broadway debuts, Cedric the Entertainer and Academy Award nominee Haley Joel Osment, the play follows three small-time crooks who wax philosophically about society while conspiring to steal the coin. Volcanic and motor mouthed Teach (Leguizamo) schemes and spars with fatherly, street-smart junk shop owner Donny (Cedric the Entertainer) enlisting Bobby (Osment), a slow-witted and desperate young delinquent, to carry out their misbegotten robbery. A hilarious, banter-fueled heist comedy and a heartbreaking portrait of criminal desperation, American Buffalo's all-star cast is powered by David Mamet's stark, rapid-fire, uniquely American and unforgettable dialogue.
