Signature Theatre has announced a 1-week extension for its current production of Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis' Our Lady of 121st Street, directed by Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad, which began previews at the Pershing Square Signature Center's Irene Diamond Stage on May 1, 2018, officially opened on May 20, and now plays a limited engagement through to June 17, 2018 (instead of June 10).

Synopsis: "After the death of the beloved Sister Rose, a group of her former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects. But at the Funeral Home, there's a problem—her dead body has been stolen. An irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Our Lady of 121st Street paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard."

The cast of Our Lady of 121st Street includes (in alphabetical order) Joey Auzenne (as Balthazar), Obie Award winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine (as Inez), Erick Betancourt (as Edwin), Maki Borden (as Pinky), Jimonn Cole (as Flip), John Doman (as Father Lux), Dierdre Friel (as Sonia), Hill Harper (as Rooftop), Kevin Isola (as Gail), Stephanie Kurtzuba (as Marcia), Paola Lázaro (as Norca), and John Procaccino (as Victor).

The creative team behind Our Lady of 121st Street features scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design by Keith Parham, and sound design by Robert Kaplowitz.

Our Lady of 121st Street Tickets are available now for performances through to June 17, 2018.
