The production, which was extended three times, will have played 12 previews and 137 regular performances.

"I am very grateful that the New York theatre community has embraced Circumcise Me," stated Campbell. "This show has exceeded my wildest expectations and I feel honored to have worked with such an amazing creative team and the wonderful people at the Bleecker Street Theater."

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.
