Due to popular demand, WP Theater and Second Stage Theater have announced a second 1-week extension for their current world premiere co-production of Our Dear Dead Drug Lord, written by Alexis Scheer and directed by Whiteny White. Previews began at the McGinn/Cazale Theater on September 11, 2019, ahead of an official opening on September 24, and the final performance will now take place on November 3, 2019.

Synopsis: "In this fierce and feverish world premiere comedy, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A rollercoaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood - the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun."
