Roundabout Announces Extensions of Sunday in the Park and Crimes of the Heart

The Roundabout Theatre Company has announced extensions for two of its productions. Sunday in the Park with George, which opened last night to rave reviews at Studio 54, will now play two extra weeks of performances, through June 1. In addition, the off-Broadway staging of Crimes of the Heart, directed by film star Kathleen Turner, has been extended for one week, with performances now running at the Laura Pels Theatre through April 20.

The Georges Seurat painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" serves as the inspiration for Sunday in the Park with George, a musical fantasy celebrating the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half, set in 1884, sees the painting and its rich comic tapestry come to life in a world where, for Georges, art comes before love, before everything. In the second half, set in 1980s New York, we see the great grandson of Georges and his search for inspiration in the world of contemporary art. For tickets and more information, click here.

In Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart, the Magrath sisters have trouble with men. Lonely Lenny never married, failed singer/actress Meg lost count, and the youngest, Babe, married an abuser and shot him. Now the sisters reunite at Old Granddaddy's home in Hazelhurst, Mississippi to face life's most absurd tragedies. Alone, each woman might call it quits. Together, they'll have the most hilarious time of their lives. For tickets and more information, click here.
