The Antipodes has been extended three times and is scheduled to play through June 4. Performances take place in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center, located at 480 West 42nd Street, New York.

The cast is made up of Phillip James Brannon (Tiny Beautiful Things), Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Josh Hamilton (Madam Secretary), Danny Mastrogiorgio (Gotham), Danny McCarthy (Prison Break), Emily Cass McDonnell (Mercury Fur), Brian Miskell (The Flick), Will Patton (Fool For Love), and Nicole Rodenburg (Venus in Fur).

The creative team includes Laura Jellinek (scenic design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Tyler Micoleau (lighting design), and Bray Poor (sound design). Laura Smith is the production stage manager. Casting is by Telsey + Company.
