Mamet’s Oleanna Revived on Broadway

David Mamet’s 1992 play, Oleanna, is being revived on Broadway with Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles. The drama, which is about a student alleging sexual harassment against a professor, came out right after the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, and before the movie Disclosure. Oleanna was also made into a movie in 1994, with Mamet directing.

Here’s a critical review of the play.

I generally dislike Mamet’s writing. One day, though, I’ll rent the movie (or, ideally, see it live).
