Atlantic Theatre Company has announced a 1-week extension for its current world premiere of Paris, the off-Broadway playwriting debut of acclaimed actor Eboni Booth.

Directed by Knud Adams, the production began previews at Atlantic Stage 2 on January 8, ahead of an official opening set for January 21, and will now run through February 16, 2020 (instead of February 9).

Synopsis: "Emmie is one of the only black people living in Paris, Vermont, and she desperately needs a job. When she is hired at Berry's, a store off the interstate selling everything from baby carrots to lawnmowers, she begins to understand a new kind of isolation. A play about invisibility, being underpaid, and how it feels to work on your feet for ten hours a day."

The cast of Paris includes Jules Latimer (as Emmie), Ann McDonough (as Wendy), Bruce McKenzie (as Carlisle), James Murtaugh (as Dev), Danielle Skraastad (as Maxine), and Christopher Dylan White (as Logan).

The creative team behind Paris features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Arnulfo Maldonado, lighting design by Oona Curley, sound design by Fan Zhang, and original music by Trey Anastasio.
