Bullet for Adolf extends run by six weeks

The American premiere of Woody Harrelson's and Frankie Hyman's comedy Bullet for Adolf, directed by Woody Harrelson, has extended its run by six weeks and will now play through to 21 Oct 2012.

The comedy opened at New World Stages / Stage 4 on 8 Aug 2012, following previews from 19 Jul 2012, and was originally scheduled to close on 9 Sep 2012.

Bullet for Adolf: During the summer of 1983, in the sweltering heat of Houston, an unlikely friendship is formed when a couple of mid-western rubes with uncertain futures meet up with a slick New Yorker on the run from his past. The disappearance of a WWII artifact sets off a chain of events that proves that nothing changes the present like a blast from the past. The characters in this new comedy by real-life friends Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman are based on real people, though the events depicted are fiction and the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.

"Frankie and I worked construction together in Houston in the summer of 1983," Harrelson explained. "The people we got to know that summer had a profound effect on us and we knew we had to write a play about them. The only problem was our real lives didn't have much of a plot, so we started embellishing. Now it's about seven-percent history and ninety-three-percent embroidery."

The cast includes: Marsha Stephanie Blake (Shareeta), Raul Casso (Dago Czech), Brandon Coffey (Zach), David Coomber (Clint), Shamika Cotton (Jackie), Shannon Garland (Batina), Chris Myers (Frankie) and Nick Wyman (Jurgen).

The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (sets), Kristy Leigh Hall (costumes), Jen Schriever (lights), Brett Jarvis (sound), and Imaginary Media (projections).

Bullet for Adolf received its world premiere last spring at the Hart House Theatre in Toronto, Canada.

The comedy is presented Off-Broadway by Children at Play.
