Tickets for the production at The Bleecker Street Theater are on sale through July 4. Circumcise Me opened Off-Broadway Nov. 18, 2009. "I am over the moon that audiences and critics alike have embraced the show and have prompted yet a third extension of our little show," Campbell said in a statement. "We were always hoping that the show would make audiences laugh and think but never dreamed it would be like this. On behalf of the whole Circumcise Me team, I can't express how excited we all are to be here through the summer."

Sam Gold directs the production, which is described as such: "Circumcise Me tells the true story of Yisrael Campbell, your average Irish, Italian, Catholic kid from Philly, who became a sober alcoholic, recovering drug addict, husband, father, reform, conservative, unorthodox, orthodox, Jewish comic actor. In his New York theatrical debut, Yisrael (born Christopher) takes the audience on an extraordinary spiritual, creative, and hysterically funny journey including, ouch, three circumcisions along the way."

The creative team includes scenic and video designer Aaron Rhyne and lighting and sound designer Perchik Kreiman-Miller.

Bleecker Street Theater is located at 45 Bleecker Street, just east of Lafayette Street.

Tickets for Circumcise Me are available by visiting Telecharge at or by calling (212) 239-6200.
