The party's over now for the Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of Noel Coward's comedy Present Laughter, starring Victor Garber, which plays its final performance at 2 PM March 21 at the American Airlines Theatre on West 42nd Street.

The limited run by the Manhattan not-for-profit began Jan. 2, and officially opened on Jan. 21. When the limited engagement ends, it will have played 23 preview performances and 69 regular performances.

The cast also includes Harriet Harris (Monica Reed), Brooks Ashmanskas (Roland Maule), Lisa Banes (Liz Essendine), Nancy E. Carroll (Miss Erickson), Alice Duffy (Lady Saltburn), Holley Fain (Daphne Stillington), Pamela Jane Gray (Joanna Lypiatt), James Joseph O'Neil (Fred), Richard Poe (Henry Lypiatt), Marc Vietor (Morris Dixon).

The design team includes Alexander Dodge (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), Rui Rita (lights) and Drew Levy (sound).

"In Noël Coward’s classic comedy, matinee idol Garry Essendine (Garber) sits at the center of his own universe," according to Roundabout. "While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingenue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose."
