4000 Miles extends - and to transfer in spring
Lincoln Center Theater has announced that it will extend the run of LCT3's world premiere of 4000 Miles, a new play by Amy Herzog, directed by Daniel Aukin, by one week through to 9 Jul 2011.
4000 Miles opened at The Duke on 42nd Street on 20 May 2011, following previews from 6 Jun 2011, and was originally scheduled to close on 2 Jul 2011.
The play opened to mostly excellent reviews: An exquisite production (Newyorktheatreguide); Altogether wonderful (NY Times); Thoughtful (NY Daily News); Deserves to be a hit (NY Post); Quietly charming (Newsroom Jersey).
In addition, LCT will re-open the production in Spring 2012 as part of its regular season at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, where it will open on 2 Apr 2011, following previews from 15 Mar 2011.
4000 Miles features Gabriel Ebert, Greta Lee, Mary Louise Wilson and Zoe Winters, with sets by Lauren Helpern, costumes by Kaye Voyce, lighting by Japhy Weideman and sound by Ryan Rumery.
4000 Miles tells the story of 21 year-old Leo (Gabriel Ebert) who, after losing his best friend while they were on a cross-country bike trip, seeks solace from his feisty, Communist grandmother (Mary Louise Wilson) in her West Village apartment.
LCT3 is Lincoln Center Theater's programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists and developing new audiences. Paige Evans is Artistic Director/LCT3.
