News   Off-Broadway's Crimes of the Heart Extended to April 20
 
The Roundabout Theatre Company's Off-Broadway production of Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart, directed by Kathleen Turner, has been extended by one week to April 20.

Performances play the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre at 111 W. 46th Street.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play about three Southern sisters features Patch Darragh (as Doc Porter), Jennifer Dundas (as Lenny Magrath), Sarah Paulson (as Meg Magrath), Lily Rabe (as Babe Botrelle), Jessica Stone (as Chick Boyle) and Chandler Williams (as Barnette Lloyd).

Crimes of the Heart began previews Jan. 18 and opened Feb. 14.

The design team includes Anna Louizos (sets), David Murin (costumes), Natasha Katz (lights) and John Gromada (sound and original compositions).

According to Roundabout, "Crimes of the Heart is a sharply funny play about the sometimes frayed edges of sisterly bonds. The Magrath sisters have trouble with men. Lonely Lenny (Dundas) never married, failed singer/actress Meg (Paulson) lost count, and the youngest, Babe (Rabe) married an abuser — and shot him. Now the sisters reunite at Old Granddaddy's home in Hazelhurst, Mississippi to face life's most absurd tragedies. Alone, each woman might call it quits. Together, they'll have the most hilarious time of their lives." Crimes of the Heart plays Tuesday through Saturday evening at 7:30 PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 PM.

The Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre is located in Manhattan at 111 West 46th Street.
