The Vineyard Theatre (108 East 15th Street) has announced another two-week extension of its newest hit play WIG OUT! by Tarell Alvin McCraney -- author of the acclaimed play, THE BROTHERS SIZE and the first recipient of The Vineyard's Paula Vogel Playwriting Award in 2007 -- now set to play through November 16.
Originally extended through November 2, WIG OUT! now extends through November 16 at The Vineyard Theatre, where WIG OUT! has been playing to packed houses and breaking box office records that surpass such past hits as [title of show] and AVENUE Q.
Likewise, WIG OUT! has been a critical success, with reviews praising Mr. McCraney's play, as well as director Tina Landau, the company of actors and the design team:
Set nearly twenty years after Madonna's "Vogue" topped music charts and "Paris Is Burning" filled movie theaters, WIG OUT! is a fierce and intoxicating new play that tells of two competing drag houses and the loves, loyalties, and dreams within each that draw their members together and apart.
WIG OUT! co-stars Daniel T. Booth, Joshua Cruz, Glenn Davis, Sean Patrick Doyle, McKenzie Frye, Nathan Lee Graham, Angela Grovey, Andre Holland, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Erik King, and Clifton Oliver.
The production has scenic design by James Schuette; costume design by Toni-Leslie James; lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski; sound design by Robert Kaplowitz; and hair, wig and make-up design by Wendy Parson.
Douglas Aibel is the Artistic Director of Vineyard Theatre; Jennifer Garvey-Blackwell is Executive Director.
Now scheduled to run through November 16, performances of WIG OUT! are Tuesdays at 7pm, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm.
Please note: THERE WILL BE NO PERFORMANCE on Tuesday November 11, however a Sunday evening performance on November 16 at 7:30pm has been added as a benefit performance.
Tickets are $60. $20 rush tickets are available two hours prior to curtain based on availability. For more about WIG OUT! and The Vineyard Theatre, call 212-353-0303 or visit www.vineyardtheatre.org
