News   Comedy Dear Prudence Extends at Rattlestick to May 4 The world premiere production of Dear Prudence at the Rattlestick has extended its run to May 4. The production also graduates to an Off-Broadway contract.

What to do when you're cramped into a New York City apartment with a roommate who is a nymphomaniac? Such is the setup for Susan Kathryn Hefti's new comedy, which was originally scheduled for a March 27-April 20 run.

The title character of this new work shares her Manhattan suite with an eclectic duo of young urbanites, including a Bronx-born tough Italian girl and a preppy WASP from Philadelphia. Prudence's promiscuous ways come under examination when her one true love arrives from England.

Rosemary Katherine Andress directs a cast that includes Kristin Stewart Chase in the title role, Jerusha Klemperer and Lynn Antunovich as her roommates, Natasha Piletich as an unsuspecting wife and Garth T. Mark as all male roles. Chase, a downtown devotee, has been seen in Or Polaroids (HERE), Sincerity Forever, Baal and Ajax (Flea Theatre).

The design team includes David Swayze (set), Marcus Doshi (lighting), Kevin Hucke (costume) and Kai Harada (sound).
