The New Group's world-premiere production of The True by Sharr White has extended an additional week at The Pershing Square Signature Center. The 1970s-set play stars Edie Falco as a blunt, profane decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party machine.
Previously scheduled through October 21, the limited run will now continued through October 28 in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Signature Center. The production will officially open September 20. Performances began September 4.
The True is billed as an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty, and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics. Scott Elliott directs a cast completed by Austin Cauldwell, Glenn Fitzgerald, Michael McKean, John Pankow, Peter Scolari, and Tracy Shayne.
