Madeleine George's comedy Hurricane Diane has extended. A co-production from New York Theatre Workshop and WP Theater, the newest work from Pulitzer Prize finalist (which opened February 24) will now run through March 24.

In Hurricane Diane, directed by Leigh Silverman, Becca Blackwell stars as Diane, a gardener whose true identity is really the Greek god Dionysus. When Diane is returned to the modern world to gather mortal followers and restore the Earth to its natural state, her mission lands her among four housewives in a suburban New Jersey cul-de-sac.

Completing the cast of Hurricane Diane are Mia Barron, Michelle Beck, Danielle Skraastad, and Kate Wetherhead.

Performances began February 7 and are scheduled to continue through March 10.

Hurricane Diane features scenic design by Rachel Hauck (What the Constitution Means to Me), costume design by Kaye Voyce (Hamlet), lighting design by Barbara Samuels (Dance Nation), sound design by Bray Poor (Othello), original music by The Bengsons (Hundred Days), and choreography by Raja Feather Kelly (The House That Will Not Stand). Melanie J. Lisby (Pacific Overtures) serves as stage manager.
