Despite being one of the most difficult writers to speak, David Mamet is one of the most produced playwrights in the tri-county area. It's a testament to the audacity of South Florida's artistic directors and the talent of our actors... ...American Buffalo, currently enjoying a superlative revival at Palm Beach Dramaworks. A stifling, compact, three character play about an attempted coin heist... Watching Creaghan, Thompson and Mueller perform this incendiary piece, it's obvious they're having a blast up there... ...If Mamet's dialogue has a musical quality to it, that music is staccato jazz, hard to master but excitingly unpredictable when done right. And this cast hits every note to perfection. ...I didn't want this terrific production to end.
