If we had a nickel for every time a child star appeared in a Broadway revival, we wouldn't be very wealthy—but if we had a very rare American Buffalo nickel. . . . Erstwhile film tot Haley Joel Osment, who used to see dead people, will now see live ones as he stars in David Mamet's numismatic classic American Buffalo about cons in a junk shop who plot a caper to steal a valuable coin. Co-stars John Leguizamo and Cedric the Entertainer add value to Robert Falls's staging. Unless they have quite a lot of spare change, Mamet-loving theatergoers will have to choose between this production and Speed-the-Plow, playing just north on the Great White Way.
