The latest New York outing for Edward Albee hasn’t even begun previews yet, but it’s already extended its limited run by three weeks.
Albee’s “Peter and Jerry,” which begins perfs Oct. 19 at Off Broadway’s Second Stage Theater, will now run through Dec. 30.
Starring Bill Pullman, Dallas Roberts and Johanna Day, show consists of two one-acts: Albee’s 1958 breakout “The Zoo Story,” preceded by a new prequel, “Homelife.” Pam MacKinnon, who helmed the play’s 2004 preem in Hartford, Conn., directs.
“Peter and Jerry” is one of several Albee productions this season coinciding with the author’s 80th birthday this spring. In New York, “The Sandbox” and “The American Dream” will play the Cherry Lane and “Occupant” will get a stint at the Signature. In addition, Albee’s newest play, “Me, Myself and I,” bows at the McCarter in Princeton, N.J., in January.
