The producers "are in the planning stages for a national tour that could take the show to Boston, Los Angeles and Montreal as early as the summer of 2006," according to a statement. Prior to its Off-Broadway debut this year Confessions of a Mormon Boy was popular in Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Miami and and Salt Lake City. The New York City run was expected to be longer. Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man) directs "the compelling and inspiring true story told with humor, song and the Book of Mormon — concerning a young gay man's captivating journey through excommunication from the Mormon church, divorce, male prostitution and drug abuse, as he struggles to reclaim himself, his children and his 'Donny Osmond smile.'"

By close, Confessions of a Mormon Boy will have played 12 previews and 80 performances.

The show will hold a final "Gay Singles Night" on Thursday April 13.

Performances are Monday at 7 PM (with Monday Night Talk-Backs immediately following the performance), Wednesday through Friday at 8 PM, Saturdays at 2 and 8 PM and Sundays at 3 and 7 PM. Tickets are $30-$55 and can be reserved by calling the Soho Playhouse box office at (212) 691-1555 or visiting www.mormonboy.com.
