Circle Mirror Transformation extends for a second time

Playwrights Horizons world premiere production of Annie Baker's comedy, Circle Mirror Transformation, directed by Sam Gold, has announced a second extension, this time by one week. The play will now run through to 21 Nov 2009.

The comedy opened at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater on 13 Oct 2009, following previews from 24 Sep, and was originally scheduled to close on 1 Nov 2009.

The play opened to positive reviews: "flat out fabulous. Period." (; "absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny" (NY Times); "bold and engrossing storytelling" (Newsday); "humorous and heartbreaking" (AP); "a beguiling little play" (Variety).

Circle Mirror Transformation: When four lost New Englanders enrolled in Marty's community center drama class experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.

Directed by Sam Gold, Circle Mirror Transformation features Reed Birney (Schultz), Peter Friedman (James), Deirdre O'Connell (Marty), Tracee Chimo (Lauren) and Heidi Schreck (Theresa).

The production features scenic and costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by Mark Barton and sound design by Leah Gelpe. Production Stage Manager is Alaina Taylor.
