A new production of A Life in the Theatre by David Mamet—also the author of Nextbook Press’s The Wicked Son—opened on Broadway yesterday. It (apparently) features Patrick Stewart looking very funny. Tablet Magazine executive editor Jesse Oxfeld, who moonlights as the New York Observer’s theater critic, said it was “fun to watch” but ultimately “insubstantial and unfulfilling, more an exercise than a play.”
