Due to popular demand, Manhattan Theatre Club’s Broadway revival of Terrence McNally’s Master Class will get a second extension. The limited engagement, starring Tyne Daly as Maria Callas, has added two weeks to its run, with tickets now on sale through September 4. Stephen Wadsworth directs the production, which began previews on June 14 and opened on July 7 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
In addition to Daly, Master Class stars Sierra Boggess (Sharon Graham), Clinton Brandhagen (Stagehand), Jeremy Cohen (Emmanuel Weinstock), Alexandra Silber (Sophie De Palma) and Garrett Sorenson (Anthony Candolino).
Terrence McNally’s play about Maria Callas (Daly) takes us to one of her famous master classes, where, late in her own career, she dares the next generation to make the same sacrifices and rise to the same heights that made her the most celebrated, the most reviled and the most controversial singer of her time.
