We missed John Malkovich as a Polanski-esque director in Louis C.K’s I Love You, Daddy. But in another winking roman-à-clef of sorts, Malkovich plays a Hollywood mogul with a striking resemblance to Harvey Weinstein. David Mamet’s latest play was controversial even before it opened.

But if you’re a completist and need to see all of Mamet’s plays, here it is. —C.J.F.
