Editor reviews

The New Yorker once wrote of David Mamet that "no modern playwright has been bolder or more brilliant". In this 2002 reading at the 92nd Street Y, the American film and stage icon reads from his play Faustus, a dramatic retelling of the classic story of a philosopher who makes a pact with the devil. Though the language isn't modern, Mamet brings his own unique style of writing dialogue to the legend. In the Q&A period that follows the reading, the playwright is funny and self-deprecating, jovially answering questions from the live audience about Shel Silverstein, the Star of David, and the singular professional focus that has led to Tony and Oscar nominations as well as the Pulitzer Prize.

Summary

Noted author, playwright, and director David Mamet reads from his manuscript version of Faustus, later published in 2004. His plays include Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-the-Plow; his screenplays include The Verdict and Wag the Dog.
