Class soon will be dismissed for David Mamet's "Oleanna."

The Broadway premiere of his 1992 play, starring Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles, has posted a closing notice. Producers of the intense, two-person drama about sexual politics in a university town said the play would close Jan. 3 at the John Golden Theatre.

Directed by Doug Hughes, the production of "Oleanna" first opened at the Mark Taper Forum in L.A. in June featuring the same cast. It opened on Broadway in October, receiving mixed to positive reviews.

In a statement, producer Jeffrey Finn said: "We've had great audiences since September, and as our sales are concentrated through the holidays, January feels like the right time to end."
