The Signature Theatre production of Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine, by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner and Residency 1 playwright Lynn Nottage and directed by Obie Award-winner Lileana Blain-Cruz, has been extended by one week to now play through January 6, 2019. The production begins performances on November 19 with a December 10 opening night in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10thAvenues).

The cast for Fabulation, or The Re-Education of Undine includes Mayaa Boateng (Fairview), Cherise Boothe (When We Were Young and Unafraid), Marcus Callender ("Power", Straight Outta Compton), J. Bernard Calloway (Head of Passes), Dashiell Eaves (A Time to Kill), Ian Lassiter (Junk), Nikiya Mathis (Skeleton Crew), and Heather Alicia Simms (Barbecue).

The creative team includes Adam Rigg (Scenic Designer), Montana Levi Blanco (Costume Designer), Yi Zhao (Lighting Designer), Palmer Hefferan (Sound Designer), and Cookie Jordan (Hair and Wig Design). The Production Stage Manager is Terri K. Kohler and Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting.

This satirical tale, set in New York City, follows successful African-American publicist Undine, as she stumbles down the social ladder after her husband steals her hard-earned fortune. Broke and now pregnant, Undine is forced to return to her childhood home in the Brooklyn projects, where she must face the challenges of the life she left behind. Featuring "punchy social insights and the firecracker snap of unexpected humor" (The New York Times), Fabulation reveals how difficult it is to outrun where we come from.

Fabulation is the first of three productions Signature will produce by Nottage over the course of her residency. By the Way, Meet Vera Stark, directed by Kamilah Forbes, will begin performances in January 2019.
