Private Lives, the Noel Coward revival which won the 2002 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, may extend for four weeks.
Producer Emanuel Azenberg, speaking backstage at the Tonys ceremony, said he hoped the limited run production would stay an additional month on Broadway. All depends on the schedules of the show's two stars, Lindsay Duncan and Alan Rickman. "I think Alan has to do a couple Harry Potters," said Azenberg, referring to the film franchise in which Rickman plays a villain.
Duncan won a Tony for her performance in Private Lives. Rickman was also nominated, but lost out to Alan Bates of Fortune's Fool.
