Second Stage Extends MAKE BELIEVE One Week

Make Believe

Due to extremely strong ticket demand, Second Stage Theater will extend its acclaimed production of Bess Wohl's new play, Make Believe, by one week, now running through Sunday, September 22nd.

Directed by Michael Greif, Make Believe features Kim Fischer, Susannah Flood, Ryan Foust, Harrison Fox, Maren Heary, Brad Heberlee, Casey Hilton and Samantha Mathis.

When does real life collide with Make Believe? For the four Conlee kids, ages 5 to 12, playing house is no longer a game when their parents inexplicably disappear. Thirty-two years later, their search for answers continues. Bess Wohl returns to Second Stage after her funny and poignant play, American Hero, with a look inside the minds of children, their parents and the mysteries of childhood that haunt us forever.

MAKE BELIEVE began previews at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theater (305 West 43rd Street) on July 30, 2019, and officially opened on August 15, 2019. Make Believe is the final production of Second Stage's 40th Anniversary Season.
