Simon Mendes da Costa's Losing Louie, presented by the Manhattan Theatre Club in its American premiere production, will close two weeks earlier than originally announced.

Originally slated to close at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street) on December 10th, the show will now play its last performance on November 26th.  It opened on October 12th.

Four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks directs the production which stars (in alphabetical order): Matthew Arkin (Reggie), Scott Cohen (Louie), Rebecca Creskoff (Bobbie), Mark Linn-Baker (Tony), Patricia Kalember (Elizabeth), Michele Pawk (Sheila), and Jama Williamson (Bella).

"How do our childhood memories affect our lives? How do the mistakes of one generation impact the next? And most importantly, why does love make us do such crazy things? Interwoven events from the past and present blend together in this wise and witty new play, as two generations of family members work things out in the same bedroom, fifty years apart," as the show is described in production notes.

The creative team includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Paul Gallo (lighting design), William Ivey Long (costume design), and Dan Moses Schreier (sound design). 

MTC's upcoming revival of Brian Friel's Translations, directed by Tony-winner Garry Hynes, will next play the Biltmore Theatre, beginning on January 4th (opening night is January 25th).

Single tickets ($86.25 - $26.25) for Losing Louie are available by calling TeleCharge.com at 212-239-6200 or at www.telecharge.com. Starting Tuesday, September 5, tickets will be available at the Biltmore Theatre box office (261 West 47th Street).
