LOS ANGELES -- Ragtime has extended its run at the Shubert Theatre from Mar. 8 to Apr. 11.
Increased publicity from the show's recent Broadway opening --including plugs on TV's "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and NBC's "Today" show--along with improving grosses led to the decision, said a company spokesperson. The extension is being called "final," as the company is expected to open in Vancouver in May.
