Bright Colors And Bold Patterns - the Off Broadway hit hailed as "devastatingly funny" by The New York Times - will extend its current run by another three weeks after stellar reviews and popular demand helped the play celebrate 100 shows. The New York Times raves that new star Jeff Hiller is "riotously funny" and delivers a "surprisingly nuanced performance." RuPaul added "Jeff Hiller is Fantastic! Sharp, clever, funny, witty."

The show continues its triumphant run at SoHo Playhouse (15 Vandam Street, between 6th Avenue and Varick Street in Manhattan) with Hiller ("Nightcap," "30 Rock," Broadway's Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) through Sunday, April 1. Tickets are on sale

BRIGHT PASS, which offers unlimited access to the show, is available for $100 each. Details are at

The show's author and original star Drew Droege (the internet's "Chloë," "Drunk History" and the upcoming "Heathers" on Paramount TV) concluded his New York run in January 2018 and plans to bring the production around the country on a national tour. Directed by Michael Urie(Torch Song, Buyer & Cellar, "Ugly Betty"), Bright Colors And Bold Patterns has returned to New York following a smash three-week engagement last season.

Bright Colors And Bold Patterns is a riotous new solo play that storms the stage with ferocity and wit, deemed "hilarious" and "uproarious" by The New Yorker, "fantastic" and "pure magic" by Time Out New York, and "side-splitting" and "fresh" from The Huffington Post. It has also been hailed as "raucous, witty and occasionally moving" by The Daily Beast, "a very funny play" by The New York Post, "outrageous and stinging" by Out Magazine and "relentlessly funny" by Buzzfeed.

Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says "Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns." In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?

Bright Colors And Bold Patterns features set design by Dara Wishingrad and is produced by Zach Laks in association with Riki Kane Larimer. Tom Detrinis serves as associate producer.

Bright Colors And Bold Patterns was originally presented at VS Theatre in Los Angeles and directed by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.

Tickets start at $59. The performance schedule and further information are available at
