The New York premiere of My Mother Has 4 Noses, the autobiographical musical play about caring for an ailing parent, will conclude its Off-Broadway run at The Duke April 19.
The play officially opened Feb. 20 following previews that began Feb. 14.
Directed by Jeremy B. Cohen, My Mother Has 4 Noses is written and performed by singer/songwriter Jonatha Brooke.
"In My Mother Has 4 Noses, Jonatha Brooke tells of her experiences caring for her mother during the final two years of her life," press notes state. "Quite the character, Jonatha's mother was a published poet, a clown, and a Christian Scientist. She also had dementia... as well as 4 noses."
Brooke chronicled her experiences, which developed into a blog and then a collection of 11 songs, prior to its stage adaptation.
My Mother Has 4 Noses has scenic design by Caite Hevner-Kemp, lighting design by ML Geiger and sound design by Paul Mitchell. Ben Butler is the musical director, and Anne Lowrie is the production stage manager.
