Bachelorette extends by one week through to 14 Aug

Second Stage Theatre has extended its run of the New York premiere of Leslye Headland's comedy Bachelorette, directed by Trip Cullman, by one week through to 14 Aug 2010.

The comedy, which began previews at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on 12 Jul 2010, opens on 26 Jul, and was originally scheduled to close on 7 Aug 2010.

Bachelorette: On the eve of her wedding, Becky has arranged the perfect bachelorette celebration, but after two parrty crashers, one manipulative maid of honor, and a bathtub of booze, things don't go according to plan.

The comedy, the second play in the Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series 2010, features Aya Cash, Tracee Chimo, Tate Ellington, Carmen M. Herlihy, Celia Keenan-Bolger and Eddie Kaye Thomas.

Created as a program to help develop and provide exposure for the voices of a new generation of theatre artists, the Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series seeks to develop the skills of emerging playwrights, to provide early-career artists with the support of a major artistic institution, and to create new plays for the American Theatre. Each show has a limited rehearsal period, as well as a streamlined budget.

The series has helped launch and advance the careers of several up-and-coming playwrights, including Rajiv Joseph (Pulitzer Prize finalist 'Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo,' 'Animals Out of Paper'), Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ('Good Boys and True,' HBO's "Big Love"), Adam Bock ('The Receptionist,' 'The Drunken City)' and Brooke Berman ('Hunting and Gathering').

Second Stage Theatre Uptown Series 2010 kicked off earlier this summer with the New York premiere of Michael Golamco's Year Zero directed by Will Frears.
