Just a day after taking home the Tony Award for Best Play, Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park has extended its run through September 2 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Directed by Pam MacKinnon, the production was originally scheduled to end 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 was nominated for three 2012 Tony Awards in addition to Best Play, including 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).
