THE BRITISH invasion of Broadway is recessed, for the moment anyway. The buzzed-about revivals of the American classic plays "A Streetcar Named Desire," "The Glass Menagerie" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" are all directed by Brits, but now the foulmouthed American salesmen of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" arrive on May 1 and are directed by our very own Joe Mantello. Yes, take back Broadway, Joe! Ironically, "Glengarry" began its career in the U.K., as it was first produced at London's National Theatre in 1983. . . . AND speaking of David Mamet, "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman hosts the Atlantic Theatre Company's 20th anniversary gala honoring founders Mamet and William H. Macy on May 2 at the gorgeous Rainbow Room. (Huffman is married to Mr. Macy.) Steve Martin, Julia Stiles, Bob Balaban, Patti LuPone an! d Jeffrey Tambor will toast the celebrated off-Broadway company that Mamet founded in 1985. Call (212) 691-5919, ext. 105. His world premiere hit comedy "Romance" finally ends its run at Atlantic on May 1.
