OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD Announces Extends Run At McGinn/Cazale Theater
Alexis Scheer's OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD, directed by Whitney White, will receive an extended life, adding nine weeks to its already twice extended run at the McGinn / Cazale Theater (2162 Broadway), through Sunday, January 5, 2020.
Producers Benjamin Simpson, Joseph Longthorne and Jana Shea will present this special extension of the smash hit, critically-acclaimed WP Theater (Lisa McNulty, Producing Artistic Director; Michael Sag, Managing Director) and Second Stage Theater (Carole Rothman, President & Artistic Director; Casey Reitz, Executive Director) production. Tickets from November 5, 2019 through January 5, 2020 are on sale now at www.ourdeardeaddruglord.com.
"This play has caught fire because it represents an audacious debut, matched by fearless direction, design, and performances from this women-led team," said Simpson, Longthorne and Shea. "Because of the overwhelming response to the play, and a desire to keep that momentum going, we were inspired to find a way to extend its run even further without altering any of the amazing alchemy of what's happening at the McGinn/Cazale."
In this fierce and feverish world premiere comedy from WP Theater and Second Stage, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A rollercoaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood - the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun.
WP Theater's Producing Artistic Director Lisa McNulty and Carole Rothman, President & Artistic Director of Second Stage Theater, stated, "We're so proud of this production and all of the artists involved, and it's a complete thrill that audiences will have more chances to see this sensational new play."
The full creative team for OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD includes scenic design by Yu-Hsuan Chen, costume design by Andrew Jean, lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno, sound design by Fan Zhang, intimacy and fight direction by Judi Lewis Ockler and casting by Kelly Gillespie, CSA. For this special extension, general management is by SL Theatricals and Nevin Law Group serves as Counsel.
