The screenplay of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glenn Ross will be presented in a special reading on Feb. 21 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
The performance is part of Jason Reitman’s “Live Read” series, which features readings of iconic movie scripts.
An all-female cast will star in the reading of the script, which was written for men, at 7:30 p.m.
The reading will feature Robin Wright as Ricky Roma, Catherine O’Hara as Shelley Levene, Maria Bello as Dave Moss, Allison Janney as George Aaronow and Mae Whitman as John Williamson.
“We toyed with the idea of doing a gender swap on a film like ‘Top Gun,’ but instead decided on a full reverse from men to women,” Reitman said. “’Glengarry’ was [critic] Elvis [Mitchell’s] idea. It’s the perfect candidate as there is no reason this script needs to be read by men outside of our own social stereotypes.”
