Should ticket sales not improve by that time, the production, which officially opened Off-Broadway July 21 after previews that began July 5 at the Little Shubert Theatre, will close following the 3 PM Sunday matinee. No official announcement about the closing has been made.

Don Crichton directs the New York run of the 90-minute comedy that has toured regionally since its 2006 premiere at the Indian Wells Theater in Palm Desert, CA.

Cutell (How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Little Me, "Wedding Crashers"), who has appeared in Viagara Falls since its 2006 premiere, leads a cast that also features Bernie Kopell ("The Love Boat") and Teresa Ganzel ("The Tonight Show," "Malcolm in the Middle").

According to producers, "Charley and Moe are widowers, war buddies and life-long pals. For his 77th birthday, rather than sitting around listening to old records, Charley decides that he and Moe need one more crack at sowing some wild oats. Moe is wary, but with the help of one loopy lady of the evening and some black market blue pills, Charley and Moe are in for the birthday party of their lives."

Viagara Falls has costume design by Bob Mackie, scenic design by Sydney Litwack, lighting design by Joshua Scherr and sound design by Peter Fitzgerald.

For tickets phone (212) 239-6200 or visit Telecharge. The Little Shubert Theatre is located at 422 West 42nd Street.
