Frankie Faison and James McDaniel in a Benefit Reading of American Buffalo

By David Mamet


Frankie Faison
Frankie Faison, perhaps best known for his role on the hit series The Wire, is returning for his second season in Cinemax's Banshee.
James McDaniel
James McDaniel starred as Lt. Arthur Fancy on the legendary ABC show "NYPD Blue" and can be seen in the hit Netflix series "Orange Is The New Black".
Ben Rosenfield
Also Starring Ben Rosenfield
Ben Rosenfield has performed at Lincoln Center and The Atlantic Theater Company. He can be seen in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire.

In a Chicago junk shop three small time crooks plot to rob a man of his coin collection, the showpiece of which is a valuable "Buffalo nickel". These high-minded grifters fancy themselves businessmen pursuing legitimate free enterprise. But the reality is that they are merely pawns caught up in their own game of last-chance, dead-end, empty pipe dreams.

Winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play

Tickets are $50 and include an informal wine reception with the cast following the performance.

Due to unforeseen conflicts in his shooting schedule, Andre Braugher had to withdraw from the reading. We hope to have Andre back for another event later this season or next.
