New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) Artistic Director James C. Nicola and Managing Director William Russo have announced that the NYTW production of the New York premiere of Belleville, written by Amy Herzog and directed by Anne Kauffman, will extend for two weeks through Sunday, April 14, following rave reviews and sold-out houses. Belleville(originally scheduled to close March 31) plays at NYTW, 79 East 4 Street, between Bowery and Second Avenue.

The play arrives in New York with the creative team behind it intact: the director, Anne Kauffman, whose subtly paced, incisive work gently stokes the play's atmosphere of unease; and the two superb actors in the central roles, Maria Dizzia and Greg Keller, whose performances have become more finely honed, emotionally revealing and, ultimately, devastating.
Abby and Zack-young, American and married - have shirked the stability of a comfortable post-graduate life in the States for Belleville, a bustling, bohemian, multicultural neighborhood in Paris. In an attempt to build a life together away from their family and friends, their passive-aggressive and aggressively passionate relationship is put to the test after an awkward afternoon discovery, a landlord's ultimatum and a cracked toenail.
Belleville plays at New York Theatre Workshop, 79 East 4th Street, between second Avenue and Bowery. The regular performance schedule is Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:00pm; Thursday and Friday at 8:00pm; Saturday at 3pm and 8pm; Sunday at 2pm and 7pm. Tickets start at $70 and may be purchased online at www.ticketcentral.com, 24 hours a day, seven days a week or by phoning Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200.
