Second Stage Theatre Uptown’s critically acclaimed production of Leslye Headlead’s Bachelorette has extended a second time, adding an additional two weeks to the show’s previously announced one-week extension. The production, directed by Trip Cullman, began previews on July 12 and opened at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on July 26. It will now play through Saturday, August 28. All performances in Bachelorette’s original run and the initial one-week extension through August 14 are sold out.
Bachelorette is described as a brutally comic look at friendship and betrayal on the way to the altar. On the eve of her wedding, Becky has arranged the perfect bachelorette celebration—but after two party crashers, one manipulative maid of honor and a bathtub of booze, things don’t go according to plan.
The second production in Second Stage's 2010 Uptown Series, Bachelorette stars Tracee Chimo, Carmen M. Herlihy, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Fran Kranz and Katherine Waterston.
Second Stage created its Uptown Series to help develop and provide exposure for the voices of a new generation of theater artists. This season’s first offering was the New York premiere of Michael Golamco’s Year Zero, directed by Will Frears.
