Off B’way ‘Town’ to extend run

Show will run through January 31

The Off Broadway production of “Our Town” will extend through Jan. 31, stretching the lifespan of the well-reviewed revival to almost a year.

Successful import of a 2008 Chicago production, directed by and starring David Cromer, “Our Town” had been a candidate for a Broadway transfer, but producers have opted instead to keep the show running at Barrow Street Theater, where it began perfs Feb. 17.

With the extension, “Our Town” becomes a relatively long-running Off Broadway play, an increasing rarity on the current legit landscape.

Show has a sizable cast of close to 20. Cromer will appear in “Our Town” (in the role of the stage manager/narrator) until Aug. 16, when he goes into rehearsal for “The Neil Simon Plays,” the double bill of Simon comedies that he will direct on Broadway in the fall. No replacement for him has yet been announced.

Off Broadway incarnation of “Our Town” is produced by a team including Scott Morfee and Jean Doumanian, among others.
