The New York premiere production, directed by David Warren, was scheduled through Jan. 7, 2007, but will now play to Jan. 21 due to ticket demand.
The play "explores the timely issue of morals vs. money as an upper middle class family goes to pieces when it is revealed that the patriarch (Fritz Weaver) has amassed the family fortune by secretly embezzling money from his clients," according to ATC. "As his son (Michael Stuhlbarg) tries to put things in order, he discovers that the family is more than willing to perpetuate this way of doing business, rather than sacrifice their comfort and luxury."
The production features Tony Award nominee Michael Stuhlbarg (The Pillowman), Tony Award winner Fritz Weaver (Child's Play), Atlantic Company members Steven Goldstein (Atlantic's Romance) and Todd Weeks (Broadway's The Full Monty) and Rachel Black (Necessary Targets), Christopher Duva (Broadway's The Elephant Man), Peter Maloney (Atlantic's Celebration and The Room), Katharine Powell (The Water's Edge), Judith Roberts (Broadway's Present Laughter), Geddeth Smith (Broadway's Waiting In The Wings), Samantha Soule (Broadway's Dinner at Eight) and CJ Wilson (Broadway's Festen).
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and Atlantic Theater Company co-founder David Mamet returns to Atlantic following the acclaimed world premiere production of his comedy Romance, which subsequently enjoyed celebrated engagements at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles and The Almeida Theatre in London. Mamet founded Atlantic Theater Company with actor William H. Macy in 1985, and over the last 20 years, the company has staged more than two dozen of the playwright's works including Edmond, American Buffalo, Sexual Perversity in Chicago and The Water Engine. The Voysey Inheritance began previews on Nov. 15 and officially opened on Dec. 6 at Atlantic Theater Company (336 West 20th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues).
The performance schedule is Tuesday through Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM & 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. All tickets are $60 and are available by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 (Telecharge.com).
