Luigi Creatore's Flamingo Court, the South Florida-set comedy that played a brief engagement at New World Stages in summer 2008 and returned to that Off-Broadway venue April 18, will play its final performance July 19.

Directed by Steven Yuhasz, the production had been scheduled to play New World Stages through Sept. 6. When it closes, Flamingo will have played 9 previews and 38 regular performances.

The cast is headed by Alex Bond ("Saturday Night Live," "All My Children"), Diane J. Findlay (Stanley, Top Girls), Tim Jerome (Tarzan, La Bohème, Beauty and the Beast, Lost in Yonkers, Grand Hotel, The Phantom of the Opera, Me and My Girl, Cats), Lucy Martin (The Constant Wife, Hollywood Arms, Joe Egg, The Sisters Rosensweig, Noises Off), Herb Rubens (45 Seconds from Broadway, Band in Berlin, Requiem for a Heavyweight) and Gordon Stanley (Cabaret, Ragtime, Beauty and the Beast, Meet Me in St. Louis, Teddy & Alice, Into the Light, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Onward Victoria).

"Ten characters, five actors, life in three condos," read press notes for Flamingo Court, which "follows the nosy and endearing residents of Flamingo Court, a South Florida apartment complex. Each apartment reveals a new story and a new lesson: Sex lives after sixty. Where there's a will, there's a relative. And love heals all wounds...at any age."

The production features scenic design by Steven Capone, lighting design by Herrick Goldman, costume design by Carol Sherry and sound design by David Arnold.

Former "M*A*S*H" favorite Jamie Farr and actress Anita Gillette co-starred in the play's 2008 Off-Broadway run. Theatre 21 and Carolyn Rossi Copeland produce the return engagement.

Show times are Wednesdays at 2 PM, Saturdays at 2 and 7 PM and Sunday at 2 PM.

New World Stages is located in Manhattan at 340 West 50th Street. Tickets are $25-$65 and can be purchased at the box office or by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
