News   Texas Homos Have More Time to Explain Themselves in Extension in NYC Solids reviews and piqued audience interest have prompted Off-Broadway's Abingdon Theatre Company to extend is production of Texas Homos, the new Jan Buttram play about men caught in a Texas police sting.

Performances will now play at the June Havoc Theatre, Abingdon Theatre Arts Complex, 312 W. 36th Street, First Floor, until March 13. Performances began Jan. 28 toward a Feb. 2 opening.

Directed by Tony Award-winner Melvin Bernhardt, Texas Homos "depicts the hilarious aftermath of a police sting operation in a public restroom, which leaves three local men facing the music as the morning paper announces their arrests. A prominent doctor, a Methodist preacher and a young wannabe-superstar dispute the true details of their encounters as their lawyer prepares for Monday's arraignment."

The cast includes Richard Bekins, Reed Birney, Michael Busillo, Karen Culp and David Van Pelt.

Abingdon presented a developmental workshop of the play in 2004.

Performances are Tuesday rough Saturday at 7:30 PM; matinees Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling SmartTix at (212) 868-4444 or online at www.smarttix.com.
