The world premiere of Eve's Song and the New York premiere of Wild Goose Dreams each extend by one week off-Broadway.
The Public Theater has announced two 1-week extensions for two of the company's fall productions.

Previews are scheduled to begin on October 21 at the Public's LuEsther Hall, ahead of an official opening on November 7, 2018.
Synopsis: "Eve's Song is a stunning, genre-bending new drama about the haunting of a black family in America. In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay? Filled with dark humor and boiling suspense, Eve's Song examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family."

Synopsis: "Minsung is a “goose father,” a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America for a better life. Deeply lonely, he escapes onto the internet and meets Nanhee, a young defector forced to leave her family behind in North Korea. Amidst the endless noise of the modern world, where likes and shares have taken the place of love and touch, Minsung and Nanhee try their best to be real for each other. But after a lifetime of division and separation, is connection possible? Wild Goose Dreams is a strikingly original play with music about two people, from two cultures, forced to choose between family and freedom."
