The Birthday Party was scheduled to begin previews Feb. 4, prior to an official opening Feb. 12.
"Postponing the run will give us the opportunity to present the best production of The Birthday Party to our audiences who have come to expect the highest quality from the Geffen," artistic director Randall Arney said in a statement.
Directed by Academy Award winner William Friedkin ("The French Connection," "The Exorcist"), the previously announced cast included Katie Amess ("The Good Drunk," "Hollywood Ugly"), Frances Barber (Julius Caesar, "Silk"), Steven Berkoff ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Tourist"), David O’Hara ("The Departed," "Luther"), Academy Award nominee Tim Roth ("Rob Roy," "Pulp Fiction") and Nick Ullett (Loot, Me and My Girl).
The production would have marked a reunion for Friedkin and the play; he directed Pinter's screenplay of The Birthday Party, which starred Robert Shaw.
