Jewish Repertory Theatre's production of James Sherman's Jest A Second! at New York's Playhouse 91 has announced that it will close Sunday, July 20, after 10 previews and 41 performances. The play, a sequel to Sherman's long-running Off-Broadway comedy, Beau Jest opened Off-Broadway June 15 after successful engagements at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theatre (1995), Lake George Dinner Theatre, Meadowbrook Theatre and Miami's Coconut Grove Playhouse. It had initially been scheduled to close June 29 but extended.
