Colman Domingo's Dot, Sarah Burgess' Dry Powder and Frank Basloe's Please Continue have all been extended Off-Broadway.
Please Continue, which officially opened February 11, will now run through March 6 at Ensemble Studio Theatre's Curt Dempster Theatre. Directed by William Carden, and presented in association with The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the new work explores the extent to which we're capable of acting cruelly. Set at Yale University in the 1960's, the play follows Professor Stanley Milgram's obedience experiments. “Milgram gets the data he needs, but the lab assistant who conducted the experiment is left to grapple with his own responsibility,” state press notes. Please Continue tackles issues of human consciousness and conformity. For more information and to purchase tickets visit ensemblestudiotheatre.org.
In Domingo's Dot, which officially opened at the Vineyard Theatre on February 23, Marjorie Johnson plays an aging matriarch grappling with memory loss. The comedy-filled drama reunites Domingo with multiple Tony-winning director Susan Stroman, and explores the complex nature of love, family and what we choose to remember. Performances now run through March 24. For more information and to purchase tickets visit vineyardtheatre.org.
