Multiple Extensions Announced

Extensions for ‘Desert Cities,’ ‘Hand to God,’ ‘Lughnasa,’ ‘Mountaintop’
The New York Times

Lincoln Center Theater has extended the Broadway run of “Other Desert Cities,” Jon Robin Baitz’s play about dark secrets in a wealthy Palm Springs family. Originally scheduled to run through Jan. 8, tickets are now on sale through March 25 and the run is open-ended. The show, with a cast that includes Stockard Channing, Rachel Griffiths, Stacy Keach, Judith Light and Thomas Sadoski, received mostly positive reviews when it opened earlier this month at the Booth Theater.

Three weeks have been added to the run of Robert Askins’s “Hand to God” at the Ensemble Studio Theater. The black comedy about a young man who encounters the devil in a sock puppet had been scheduled to close on Sunday. Instead it will take Thanksgiving week off and resume performances on Nov. 30 and continue through Dec. 18.

“Dancing at Lughnasa,” the Off Broadway revival of Brian Friel’s Tony-winning hit, will play three more weeks as well. Originally scheduled to run through Dec. 11, the Irish Repertory Theater production now continues through Jan. 15, 2012.

Finally, “The Mountaintop,” with Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, will play one extra week, through Jan. 22, and an evening performance has been added on Jan. 15, Martin Luther King’s Birthday. The play imagines King’s meeting with a young maid the night before his assassination at a Memphis motel.
