The Broadway transfer of Heisenberg is still in previews, but strong ticket demand has prompted the producers, Manhattan Theatre Club, to announce a week’s extension to its limited engagement.

Following a sold-out, world-premiere run at Manhattan Theatre Club Stage II Off-Broadway space last year, Simon Stephens’ acclaimed two-hander has returned to the New York stage with Denis Arndt and Mary-Louise Parker reprising their roles. The show began previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre September 20 and is still scheduled to open October 13. It had been scheduled to run through December 3, but will now continue through December 11.

The new play, by The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Tony winner Stephens with direction by Mark Brokaw, sees two beguiling strangers quickly embark on a life-changing journey.

“Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck,” state production notes. “This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (How I Learned to Drive), Heisenberg brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.”

The creative team includes Mark Wendland (scenic design), Michael Krass (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design) and David Van Tieghem (sound design).

A limited amount of Heisenberg $30 Rush tickets are available via the TodayTix app starting at 10 AM on the day of the performance on a first-come, first-served basis. Winners will be instructed to pick up their tickets via TodayTix concierge delivery outside of the theatre beginning 30 minutes prior to curtain.

Tickets to Heisenberg can also be purchased by visiting ManhattanTheatreClub.com. The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre is located at 261 West 47th St.
