News   CQ/CX, Tale of a Journalism Scandal, Extends to March 11 in NYC
 
The Atlantic Theater Company world-premiere production of Gabe McKinley's journalism play CQ/CX, directed by Tony Award nominee David Leveaux, has been extended by one week in advance of officially opening Feb. 15.

Performances now play to March 11 at the Peter Norton Space on West 42nd Street.

The cast includes Larry Bryggman, Peter Jay Fernandez, Tim Hopper, Arliss Howard, Kobi Libii, David Pittu, Steve Rosen and Sheila Tapia.

According to ATC, "Jay, an up and coming black reporter at The New York Times, finds his dreams of becoming a famous journalist come crashing down as he becomes the center of a plagiarism scandal. Drawing on his own experience as a newsman, McKinley weaves a revealing and complex story about the collateral damage of unchecked ambition and compounded lies. In this new play inspired by real events, truth becomes slippery and racial tensions reach a boiling point. CQ/CX raises difficult questions about the state of our media culture, and the meaning and price of journalistic integrity."

CQ/CX will play to Feb. 19 at these times: Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM, Sunday at 3 PM and 7 PM; Feb. 21-March 4 at these times: Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM, Sunday at 3 PM (there is no Sunday evening performance on Feb. 19); and March 6-11 at these times: Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM, Sunday at 3 PM and 7 PM.
