Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) has just announced a one-week extension of Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning play Talley's Folly, starring Danny Burstein as "Matt Friedman" and Sarah Paulson as "Sally Talley", directed by Michael Wilson. The limited engagement has been extended to May 12, 2013 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).
The design team includes Jeff Cowie (Sets), David Woolard (Costumes), Rui Rita (Lights) & Mark Bennett (Original Music & Sound Design).
At the end of World War II, Matt Friedman (Burstein), a Jewish immigrant who has spent his life keeping others at a distance, returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley (Paulson). Nothing like her conservative Protestant family and neighbors, Sally is a nurse with deep misgivings about the country's future. After a lifetime of believing they'll never truly belong in the world around them, Matt has worked up the courage to ask Sally for her hand, and convince her that they do belong - together.
Talley's Folly premiered in 1979 off-Broadway at Circle Repertory Theatre and moved to Broadway in 1980. Lanford Wilson received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Tickets are available online at roundabouttheatre.org, by phone at (212) 719-1300, or in person at the Laura Pels Box Office (111 West 46th Street.). Tickets are $81.00.
Talley's Folly plays Tuesday through Saturday evening at 7:30PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00PM.
