2010 Tony nominee David Alan Grier and film star Kerry Washington will play their final performance in the Broadway production of David Mamet's Race on June 13, while Emmy winner James Spader will depart the cast following the June 20 performance.

The play, directed by Mamet, has also announced that it will now close at the Barrymore Theatre on Saturday, August 21, rather than the previously reported August 23. The current cast also features Richard Thomas. Replacement casting will be announced at a later date.

In the play, three attorneys, two black and one white, are offered a chance to defend a white man charged with a crime against a black woman.

The production features sets by Santo Loquasto, lighting design by Brian Macdevitt, and costumes by Tom Broecker. As recently reported, the play recouped its investment.
