The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's production of the Tony Award-winning musical Man of La Mancha, which officially opened Oct. 20, has been given an additional week of performances through Nov. 25 at the company's mainstage F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre.
"Given the extraordinary response to this show, the unfortunate loss of performances due to the power outage, and the many difficulties our patrons have faced in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, we are thrilled to be able to to extend the run of this show through Thanksgiving week," said Shakespeare Theatre artistic director Bonnie. J. Monte in a statement.
Monte directs the production, which began previews Oct. 17 and was originally scheduled through Nov. 18; music direction is by Doug Oberhamer.
