Directed by Bart DeLorenzo, the production was originally scheduled to play the California venue through Sept. 20. Performances will now continue through Nov. 21, according to the company's official website. The cast also features Jennifer Finnigan, Jeff Perry and Chris L. McKenna.

Press notes for The Receptionist state: "'Can I put you into his voicemail?' Client meetings, pastry, romantic advice and personal calls... it’s business-as-usual at the Northeast Office. Or is it?"

The production features set design by Chris Covics, lighting design by Christopher Kuhl, costume design by Ann Closs-Farley and sound design by John Zalewski.

A two-time Emmy Award winner for her portrayal of Karen Walker on NBC's "Will & Grace," Mullally's credits include the Broadway revivals of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Grease!, as well as the Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein. Mullally and her band, Supreme Music Program, have released the albums "Sweetheart," "Big as a Berry" and their latest, "Free Again!"

Bock's plays include The Drunken City, The Thugs, Swimming in the Shallows, Five Flights, The Typographer's Dream, The Shaker Chair and Three Guys and a Brenda.
