Roundabout Theatre Company has now announced a 1-week extension for its current world premiere of Daniel Zaitchik's Darling Grenadine, which marks the first new Roundabout Underground musical in a decade. Previews began at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on January 16, 2020, ahead of an official opening on February 10. The limited engagement will now run through March 22, 2020 (instead of March 15), with the final performance acting as a special benefit performance with all proceeds directly funding Roundabout Underground and its future commissions.

Synopsis: "​When charismatic songwriter Harry falls for clever chorus girl Louise, all of Manhattan glitters with the blush of new love. But what happens when the sparkling fantasy begins to dissolve? Bubbling over with charm, wit, and whimsy, Darling Grenadine navigates the tension between romance and reality, light and dark, bitter and sweet."

The cast includes Matt Dallal (as Man), Jay Armstrong Johnson (as Paul), Adam Kantor (as Harry), Aury Krebs (as Woman), Mike Nappi (as The Street Musician), and Emily Walton (as Louise).

Directed and choreographed by Michael Berresse, the creative team also features music direction by David Gardos, orchestrations by Matthew Moisey, scenic design by Tim Mackabee, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, sound design by Brian Ronan, and projections by Edward T Morris. In addition, William Berloni serves as Animal Trainer for the production.

Darling Grenadine Tickets are available now for performances through March 22, 2020.
