BECKY SHAW Extends at Second Stage for Six Weeks Through March 15
Due to overwhelming ticket demand, Second Stage Theatre's critically acclaimed production of Gina Gionfriddo's comedy, BECKY SHAW, has extended six weeks, through March 15. Directed by Peter Dubois, BECKY SHAW features David Wilson Barnes, Emily Bergl, Kelly Bishop, Annie Parisse, and Thomas Sadoski. The production opened on Thursday, January 8 and was originally scheduled to run through February 1. Tickets are available through www.2ST.com or by calling 212-246-4422. Second Stage Theatre is located at 307 West 43rd street.
In BECKY SHAW, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife's best friend, meet husband's sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny new play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
Charles Isherwood of The New York Times calls BECKY SHAW, "Ferociously funny! A big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last! For lovers of theater this deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted new play proves a bracing antidote to the dispiriting news of closings and financial anxiety both on and off Broadway. It's a kick!" Michael Kuchwara of the Associated Press calls the play, "a sharp social comedy of articulate anger...a rambunctious, theatrically volatile evening. The laughs flow freely." And Marilyn Stasio of Variety calls BECKY SHAW, "a blithely cynical and devastatingly funny play. Gina Gionfriddo is some kind of genius."
