Lincoln Center Theater's Disgraced has extended its off-Broadway run through December 2 at the Claire Tow Theatre. The LCT3 show was initially expected to close on November 18.
Disgraced stars Aasif Mandvi as Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. When Amir and his wife Emily (Heidi Armbruster), a white artist influenced by Islamic paintings, host a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging.
The play was developed as part of the AracaWorks bi-annual reading series and received its world premiere at Chicago’s American Theatre Company. LCT3 is a programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists as well as developing new audiences.
