Due to a last-minute scheduling conflict with Norbert Leo Butz, the production will now conclude as originally scheduled March 11 (the drama had recently announced an extension through March 18).

Two-time Tony Award winner Butz and Emmy Award nominee Elizabeth Reaser star in the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama of a girl's coming of age.

Kate Whoriskey directs the well-reviewed production, which opened Feb. 13. How I Learned to Drive also features Kevin Cahoon (The Wedding Singer, The Foreigner), Jennifer Regan (Born Yesterday) and Marnie Schulenburg (24-Hour Musicals).

The play "explores the complex relationship between Li'l Bit (Reaser) and her Uncle Peck (Butz), as a series of driving lessons progresses from innocence to something much darker," according to Second Stage. "Told with surprising wit, Paula Vogel's acclaimed play has returned to New York City for the first time since its world premiere 15 years ago."
