Puttin' on 'The Ritz' for 1-More Week, Extends to Dec.9

Roundabout Theatre Company is thrilled to announce a one-week extension of the acclaimed new Broadway production of The Ritz now through Sunday, December 9.

"The Ritz is an over-the-top comedy that takes place in a bathhouse in Manhattan. When Gaetano Proclo needs to hide from mobster Carmine Vespucci, he escapes to the Ritz. When Gaetano realizes the Ritz is a gay bathhouse and not a Turkish bath, he pretends to be a big-time Broadway producer to keep suspicions low. When Carmine locates Gaetano what transpires is wild, manic mayhem," describe press notes.
