DAVID MAMET’S CHINA DOLL CONCLUDES SUCCESSFUL LIMITED BROADWAY ENGAGEMENT THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 31ST
“A strongly wrought story of considerable moral complexity . . .
by one of America’s best living playwrights,
starring one of America’s greatest actors.
It will hold your attention all the way to the brutal end.”
