Bachelorette extends for a 2nd time
Second Stage Theatre has announced an additional two week extension of their production of Leslye Headland's Bachelorette, directed by Trip Cullman, through to 28 Aug 2010.
All performances in Bachelorette's original run, including its initial one-week extension through 14 Aug 2010, are completely sold out.
The comedy, which opened at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on 26 Jul, following previews from 12 Jul, 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.
