Features: David Mamet's 1977 play A Life in the Theater examines the relationship between two actors, one old and one young, and the effect jealousy has on that relationship. This production of A Life in the Theater NYC, performed at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, starred T.R. Knight and Patrick Stewart and ran from October 12 to November 28, 2010.

Why We Go: This production of A Life in the Theater NYC starred two talented actors: one, T.R. Knight, is a fixture on TV; the other, Patrick Stewart, is a respected film, television, and stage actor with a career spanning 50 years.

  • Patrick Stewart: One of the world's most talented and recognizable stage performers, Patrick Stewart is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company with over 60 productions to his credit. This production of A Life in the Theater NYC, which ran from October to late November 2010, showed him at his best.
  • T.R. Knight: As half the cast of A Life in Theater NYC, T.R. Knight had his work cut out for him. Not surprisingly, this SAG Award-winning actor was up the challenge: in the show's 56 performances, Knight managed to hold his own with distinguished stage and screen actor Patrick Stewart.
  • David Mamet: Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet wrote A Life in the Theater in 1977. In this play, one of his lesser known works, we see the respected playwright toying with the themes that would appear in his award-winning later works. 

Inside Knowledge: Sir Patrick Stewart was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2001.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Watch Grey's Anatomy: If you missed T.R. Knight in this production of A Life in the Theater NYC, don't despair: you can still catch the SAG Award-winning actor on TV, in reruns of the hit series Grey's Anatomy.
  • Do Try Jersey Boys: Because this production of A Life in the Theater NYC is closed, we recommend attending the Broadway production of Jersey Boys, which explores similar themes.
  • Don't Bring the Kids: A Life in the Theater NYC features strong language and adult situations and is best enjoyed by children over the age of 13.
  • Don't Miss Patrick Stewart: While you can no longer see him in A Life in the Theater NYC, you can still catch Patrick Stewart in his numerous film and television productions, such as Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Men: The Last Stand.
