The world premiere of Nicky Silver’s Too Much Sun will extend its run at the Vineyard Theatre. The play, which stars Tony winner Linda Lavin and begins performances on May 1, will now run through June 22, as opposed to its originally scheduled final performance on June 8. Opening night is set for May 18.
Directed by Mark Brokaw, Too Much Sun tells the story of Audrey Langham, a celebrated actress who unravels completely while preparing for a new production of Medea. With nowhere else to go, she descends upon her married daughter for a summer by the sea. She is not, however, greeted with confetti and champagne. Her arrival sets off a chain of events alternately hilarious and harrowing.
In addition to Lavin, the cast of Too Much Sun includes Tony nominee Jennifer Westfeldt, Richard Bekins, Matt Dellapina, Ken Barnett and Matt Dickson.
