News   Broadway's Master Class Now Extended to Sept. 4
A raft of enthusiastic reviews for Tyne Daly's performance as Maria Callas in Master Class has prompted Manhattan Theatre Club to extend its Broadway revival of Terrence McNally's play for a second time. It will now play to Sept. 4 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Stephen Wadsworth directs the play about a late-career Callas bullying and nurturing classical voice students at a master class in the 1970s. (She also offers her artistic point of view and great swaths of her personal life, including her affair with Aristotle Onassis.) It's a work of fiction inspired by her real classes at the Juilliard School.

The production opened on July 7.
