Bruce Norris’ Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony-nominated play Clybourne Park has extended its run at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre by four weeks. The play, directed by Pam MacKinnon, began its limited engagement of 16 weeks on March 26. The show will now run until August 12.
Clybourne Park presents a pair of racially charged real estate transactions involving one house in 1959 and 2009. The Broadway production features Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton, Christina Kirk, Annie Parisse, Tony nominee Jeremy Shamos and Frank Wood. MacKinnon’s production of Clybourne Park began life off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2010, before heading to the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles for a successful run earlier this year.
Clybourne Park is nominated for four 2012 Tony Awards: Best Play, Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play (Shamos), Best Scenic Design of a Play (Daniel Ostling) and Best Direction of a Play (MacKinnon).
