When actor Steven Goldstein started reading David Mamet's new play, "Romance," he was thrown by the relentlessly foul language.
Reviews of the play, which ran in New York for two and a half months, generally appreciated the humor in the obscenity and racial-epithet laden play. And many in the audience laughed raucously, although others exited the theater by the second act.
Now, L.A. theater patrons will be able to judge for themselves. The play opened this week at the Mark Taper Forum.
