Arthur Miller's All My Sons, starring Annette Bening & Tracy Letts, extends on Broadway

Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a 1-week extension for its Tony-nominated Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, directed by Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, which began previews at Broadway's American Airlines Theatre on April 4, 2019, and officially opened on April 22. The limited engagement will now run through to June 30, 2019 (instead of June 23).
Synopsis: "In the aftermath of WWII, the Keller family struggles to stay intact and to fight for their future when a long-hidden secret threatens to emerge—forcing them to reckon with greed, denial, repentance, and post-war disenchantment across generations. All My Sons is widely considered as the play that launched Arthur Miller as the moral voice of the American Theater."
The production is currently nominated for three Tony Awards - "Best Revival of a Play," "Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play" (for Annette Bening), and "Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play" for Benjamin Walker).
