ROMEO & BERNADETTE: A MUSICAL TALE OF VERONA & BROOKLYN Extends At Theatre 555

Prior to last night's performance, producer Eric Krebs announced a five-week extension of the critically-acclaimed hit Off-Broadway production of Romeo & Bernadette: A Musical Tale of Verona and Brooklyn, with book and lyrics by Mark Saltzman, music adapted from classic Italian melodies, directed and choreographed by Justin Ross Cohen.

Presented in association with Amas Musical Theatre (Donna Trinkoff, Artistic Producer) at Theater 555 (555 West 42nd Street - between 10th and 11th Avenues), performances will now continue through Sunday, July 31, 2022.

"With terrific reviews and fabulous word of mouth, I hope to propel Romeo & Bernadette into the must-see Off-Broadway show for the summer," states Mr. Krebs. "With all the difficult issues in play in our culture, I am thrilled each evening to watch our audiences laugh through two hours of pure joy. I have produced for fifty years, and I can honestly say that this is the production that reminds me best of why I went into theater as a profession and why audiences crave theater so deeply. Also, I am reminded every performance that actors are amazingly talented and brave people."
