‘Inishmaan’ extended by four weeks

Off Broadway run will now wrap March 1

The current revival of Martin McDonagh’s 1997 play “The Cripple of Inishmaan” by the Atlantic Theater Co. and the Druid ensemble has been extended by four weeks.

The Off Broadway run at the Atlantic’s Linda Gross Theater will now wrap March 1 instead of Feb. 1 thanks to record next-day ticket sales. The play began previews Dec. 9.

Garry Hynes, a Tony winner in 1998 for McDonagh’s “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” is directing “Cripple.” The cast, transferred intact from a U.K. tour, includes Kerry Condon, Andrew Connolly, Laurence Kinlan, Dearbhla Molloy, Aaron Monaghan, Marie Mullen, Patricia O’Connell, David Pearse and John C. Vennema.

The production reps the third teaming of the Atlantic and McDonagh. They previously launched “The Lieutenant of Inishmore,” which moved to Broadway and netted five Tony noms in 2006.

“The Cripple of Inishmaan” is set on an island off the Irish coast in 1934. When a Hollywood filmmaker arrives to make a movie, the sleepy community is stirred to new life when a disabled orphan named Billy Claven gets ready for his closeup.
