The Irish Repertory Theater has extended its run of Brian Friel's Aristocrats by three weeks.

The play opened at the Irish Repertory Theater on 25 Jan 2009, following previews from 16 Jan, for a limited engagement that was originally scheduled to end on 8 Mar 2009, but will now play through to 29 Mar 2009.

The play opened to mostly excellent reviews: "A first-rate revival." (NY Times); "Admirable if uneven revival." (Back Stage); "Meticulous revival, helmer... Charlotte Moore assembles a dream cast."(Variety)

The creative team features set design by James Morgan, costumes by Linda Fisher, lighting by Brian Nasson and sound by Zachary Williamson.
