The long-running, multiple-extended Afterglow will play its final performance Off-Broadway August 12. Previously scheduled through July 1, the hit show's final extension follows its recent one-year anniversary.

Written and directed by S. Asher Gelman, Afterglow began performances June 12, 2017, at The Loft at The Davenport Theatre, where it officially opened June 23.

The play is a raw, intimate, and sometimes controversial exploration of the emotional, intellectual, and physical connections between three men. The cast is made up of Joe Chisholm, Brandon Haagenson, and David Merten.


Following the conclusion of the Off-Broadway run, Afterglow will receive its regional debut in Salt Lake City this fall and will be produced internationally in Amsterdam, Mexico City, and London, with more details and cities to be announced.

The production features scenic design by Ann Beyersdorfer, costume design by Fabian Aguilar, lighting design by Jamie Roderick, sound design by Alex Dietz-Kest, and dramaturgy by Mike Ross. Nina Kauffman is the show's assistant director, Kate Lumpkin is the casting director, Laura Malseed is the production stage manager, Will Chaloner is the assistant stage manager, Evan Bernardin Productions is the general manager, and Gwynne Richmond is the company manager.

The Off-Broadway production of Afterglow is presented by Midnight Theatricals. Tickets can be purchased by visiting
