'The Slug Bearers' Extends thru March 16 at The Vineyard

The Tony Award-winning Vineyard Theatre (108 East 15th Street) has announced a two-week extension of its new musical The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island (Or, The Friends of Dr. Rushower) with libretto and drawings by Ben Katchor and music composed by Mark Mulcahy, now set to play through March 16.

Originally scheduled through March 2, The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island extends through March 16, due to strong ticket sales and on the strength of reviews that praise the musical, which features noted cartoonist Ben Katchor's drawings as an animated background for a story set in and around Manhattan and on a tropical island of exploited factory workers. The critics had praise, too, for the musical's score by indie-rock composer Mark Mulcahy.

Directed by Bob McGrath, The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island features an ensemble cast led by Tony-Award nominee Peter Friedman (Ragtime) Bobby Steggert (110 in the Shade), Stephen Lee Anderson (Footloose), Tom Riis Farrell (Coram Boy), Jody Flader, Matt Pearson and Will Swensen.

The production features choreography by John Carrafa (Urinetown); set and projections by Jim Findlay and Jeff Sugg; costume design by Mattie Ullrich; lighting design by Russell H. Champa; sound design by David Arnold and Brett Jarvis; choreography by John Carrafa (Urinetown), and musical direction by Erik James.

Now scheduled through March 16, performances of The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island (Or, The Friends of Dr. Rushower) run Tuesdays at 7pm, Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8pm, with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 3pm.

Tickets are $60; 2 hours prior to curtain, students may purchase any available seats for $20 each. Valid student ID required; limit 2 tickets per ID. For reservations and additional information about Vineyard Theatre, call 212-353-0303 or visit www.vineyardtheatre.org
