NEW YORK (AP) - Patti LuPone and Laurie Metcalf will star in David Mamet's "The Anarchist" on Broadway next fall.

Producers said Thursday that the play, which will be making its American debut, is about typical concerns to Mamet _ politics, money, religion and sex. The playwright, who also wrote "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Race," will direct his new work.

LuPone, who earned two Tony Awards for "Sweeney Todd" and "Gypsy," was nominated for a Tony this year for her performance in "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown." She has acted in several Mamet plays, including "The Blue Hour" and "The Woods."

Emmy Award-winner Metcalf, a member of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, appeared in the TV series "Roseanne" and was nominated for a 2008 Tony Award for her performance in Mamet's "November."
