GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS

This 1984 Pulitzer winner represents the purest distillation of David Mamet’s trademark dialogue: those staccato exchanges, bursting with obscenities. Director Charles Towers sustains an atmosphere of high-stakes tension as Will LeBow and Todd Licea lead a skilled ensemble, playing bottom-feeding salesmen forced to compete to keep their jobs. Through May 19. Merrimack Repertory Theatre, Lowell. 978-654-4678, www.mrt.org
