Al Pacino, who was last seen on Broadway portraying the role of Shelly Levene in Mamet’s acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross and recently as Phil Spector in the HBO film written by David Mamet, is a two-time Tony Award winner who also starred in the 1983 revival of American Buffalo.

Denham also appeared on screen in films such as the 2013 Academy Award-winning Best Picture Argo starring Ben Affleck, and Shutter Island starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
CHINA DOLL will mark the tenth presentation of a David Mamet work by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Steve Traxler on Broadway and the West End.
The creative team will include scenic design by Tony Award winner Derek McLane (33 Variations, Beautiful The Carol King Musical), costume design by Tony Award winner Jess Goldstein (The Rivals, Jersey Boys), and lighting design by Russell H.
