A new block of tickets for the production, which officially opened Off-Broadway Nov. 11, are now on sale through March 22, 2009. The one-person show will also now offer Saturday matinees at 4 PM instead of 10 PM Saturday performances. In a statement producer Eli Gonda said, "There is nothing like seeing people leave a theatre feeling better about life than when they walked in. On behalf of the entire team, we're ecstatic that audiences have embraced the show and that we can continue to have fun."
The show's talkback sessions, titled An Awkward 10 Minutes with Mike, will continue Dec. 17 with "This American Life" host Ira Glass and Dec. 18 with Laura Hedli, the theatre editor for Columbia University's Columbia Daily Spectator.
In Sleepwalk With Me, press notes state, Birbiglia "takes the audience on a hysterically funny and intensely personal journey through stories of his life and bouts with sleepwalking. As he finally confronts his fears of love, honesty and growing up, we see that some people's problems will work themselves out with a nice long walk — but not Mike's."
The production features set design by Beowulf Borwitt, lighting design by Jason Lyons and sound design by Jody Elff. Seth Barrish directs.
Producers are Eli Gonda, Ryan Scott Warren, Mark Turtletaub, Peter Saraf and Nathan Lane.
The Bleecker Street Theatre is located at 45 Bleecker Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.
