The world premiere of Gently Down the Stream, the new play by Tony-nominated playwright and screenwriter Martin Sherman, has extended a second time and will now play through May 21. The show opened April 5 at the Public Theater, starring Harvey Fierstein, Gabriel Ebert, and Christopher Sears.

Directed by Sean Mathias, the new play began previews March 15.

In Gently Down the Stream, Fierstein plays Beau, a pianist expat living in London at the dawn of the internet dating revolution. The play chronicles his relationship with Rufus, an eccentric young lawyer played by Ebert. Hailing from two very different generations of gay men, their subsequent love story is billed by the theatre as “remarkably moving“ and “brilliantly funny.“
