Roundabout Theatre Company is thrilled to announce a
one-week extension of the acclaimed new Broadway production of The Ritz now through Sunday, December 9.
Rosie Perez and Kevin Chamberlin star in Terrence McNally's
comedy The Ritz, directed by Joe
Mantello at Studio 54 on Broadway (254
West 54th St). The
Ritz opened officially on Thursday, October 11, 2007. This limited engagement has been extended one
week through Sunday, December 9.
"The Ritz is an
over-the-top comedy that takes place in a bathhouse in Manhattan. When Gaetano Proclo needs to hide
from mobster Carmine Vespucci, he escapes to the Ritz. When Gaetano realizes
the Ritz is a gay bathhouse and not a Turkish bath, he pretends to be a
big-time Broadway producer to keep suspicions low. When Carmine locates Gaetano
what transpires is wild, manic mayhem," describe press notes.
