CLYBOURNE PARK Extends for 4 Weeks Through Aug 12

THE PULITZER PRIZE WINNING AND TONY AWARD NOMINATED BEST PLAY

C L Y B O U R N E    P A R K

ANNOUNCES 4 WEEK EXTENSION AT THE WALTER KERR THEATRE
BY POPULAR DEMAND

TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW FOR ALL PERFORMANCES
THROUGH AUGUST 12, 2012

New York, NY (May 23, 2012) – Producer Jordan Roth announced today that the Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony Award-nominated “Best Play” Clybourne Park, now playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre, has extended its run by popular demand, adding another 4 weeks to the previously announced 16-week engagement.  Tickets are now on sale for all performances through August 12th.

Nominated for 4 Tony Awards including “Best Play” (Bruce Norris), “Best Direction of a Play” (Pam MacKinnon), Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play” (Jeremy Shamos), “Best Scenic Design of a Play” (Daniel Ostling), and winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and Olivier Award, Clybourne Park is the wickedly funny and fiercely provocative new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each.  Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart.  Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. 

Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park received its world premiere at Playwrights Horizons in 2010 followed by a critically acclaimed pre-Broadway engagement at Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Under the direction of Pam MacKinnon, the highly praised original cast includes Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton, Christina Kirk, Annie Parisse, Jeremy Shamos and Frank Wood

The design team features Daniel Ostling (Scenic Design), Ilona Somogyi (Costume Design), Allen Lee Hughes (Lighting Design), and John Gromada (Sound Design). 

Clybourne Park is produced by Jujamcyn Theaters, Jane Bergère, Roger Berlind/Quintet Productions, Eric Falkenstein/Dan Frishwasser, Ruth Hendel/Harris Karma Productions, JTG Theatricals, Daryl Roth,  Jon B. Platt, Center Theatre Group, in association with Lincoln Center Theater.
