Christian Slater has returned to the London stage in David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning study of real estate sharks, GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS at the Playhouse Theatre. He plays the cut-throat ‘schmoozer’ Ricky Roma, the ‘salesmen’s salesman’ to great acclaim. Christian signed an earlier drawing I did of him in the 2006 London production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST a few weeks ago and this one as Roma after last Saturday’s evening performance at the Playhouse stage door.
After a ten year hiatus, Christian Slater has returned to the West End in the revival of David Mamet’s landmark 1983 drama GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS, which is currently in previews, opening on 9 November at the Playhouse Theatre. Last seen in the business satire SWIMMING WITH SHARKS at the Vaudeville in 2007, Christian made his London stage debut as the rebellious Randle Patrick McMurphy in Dale Wasserman’s adaption of Ken Kesey’s cult novel ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST at the Gielgud in 2004. He reprised the role for a return season two years later at the Garrick. Christian very kindly met a few of us waiting at the Playhouse stage door after the first GLENGARRY matinee and signed my CUCKOO’s NEST sketch.
