1. Bobby Cannavale as Richard Roma (right) in David Mamet’s play “Glengarry Glen Ross" opposite Al Pacino (left). On Fresh Air today, Cannavale describes his work on Broadway:

[Glengarry] is one of those plays that actors talk about and say, ‘It’s a perfect play.’ And it’s a perfect play because it’s about, you know, seven guys who desperately want something and need something at a time when people desperately want and need things. It was written, you know, in 1982. I think it’s a prescient play to do today, but let’s face it, I mean, I think great plays are about people wanting things, [being] desperate for things. I think [that’s] what makes great drama, and I think that’s one of those things that’s just always resonant. It’s just what we are as a culture and in America in particular.”
