It'll Be August Through MarchIt'll Be August Through March
Although Tracy Letts' August: Osage County is missing its Broadway opening night, originally scheduled for this evening, the production is helping negate rumors about its future by announcing that it will extend its limited engagement by three weeks.
August: Osage County is currently closed due to the strike by Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) against The League of American Theatres and Producers.
The good news is that this incredible Steppenwolf production will now run through March 9, according to Playbill.
Steppenwolf's Executive Director David Hawkinson is quoted saying:
We sympathize with our talented New York company and the many theatre fans affected by this unfortunate labor dispute....We hope this extension will allow August to realize its full potential in New York and afford Broadway theatregoers the opportunity to experience this extraordinary production.Once the ongoing stagehands strike reaches a settlement, do yourself a favor and get tickets to see this unforgettable production.
