Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is pleased to announce a one-week extension of The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, by Tennessee Williams, directed by Michael Wilson, through Sunday, April 10th.  

The cast includes Curtis Billings (Giulio), Elisa Bocanegra (Simonetta), Olympia Dukakis (Flora Goforth), Edward Hibbert (Witch of Capri), Maggie Lacey (Frances Black), Darren Pettie (Christopher Flanders).  Gordana Rashovich, currently on standby for Olympia Dukakis, will play the role of “Flora Goforth” on Wednesday evenings through March 30th.

The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore officially opened on Sunday, January 30th, 2011 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).  The limited engagement has been extended through Sunday, April 10th, 2011.

The design team includes Jeff Cowie (Sets), David C. Woolard (Costumes), Rui Rita (Lights) & John Gromada (Original Music & Sound).

In this haunting Tennessee Williams drama, Olympia Dukakis stars as Flora Goforth, a wealthy American widow.  In her picturesque Italian mountaintop home, Flora has detached from the world in order to write her memoirs. When a handsome and mysterious young visitor arrives without warning to keep Flora company in her final hours, this dreamlike play blossoms into a fascinating meditation on life and death.
