Broadway’s Tony-Nominated ‘Appropriate’ Gets Third And Final Extension

With eight Tony Award nominations, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Appropriate, starring Sarah Paulson, has been extended for a third and what producers say is a final time.

After 26 weeks on Broadway, the production has added an additional eight performances to its run, with closing night at the Belasco Theater now set for Sunday, June 30.

The Second Stage Theater production received unanimous raves, with box office consistently strong with sold out (or nearly so) houses.

“We are beyond thrilled to extend Appropriate for one more week so additional audiences can witness this astonishing cast bring Branden’s brilliant play to life,” said the show’s producers in a joint statement. “The response from critics and audiences alike has been overwhelming, propelling the production from The Hayes Theater to an extended run at The Belasco and we feel lucky and extremely grateful for the support the show has received from the Broadway community.”

In addition to Paulson, Appropriate, directed by Lila Neugebauer, also features Corey Stoll, Michael Esper, Natalie Gold, Ella Beatty, Graham Campbell, Alyssa Emily Marvin, Lincoln Cohen and Everett Sobers.

The production’s eight Tony nominations include Best Revival of a Play, Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Paulson), Best Performance by an Actor in Featured Riole in a Play (Stoll), Best Direction of a Play (Neugebauer), Best Scenic Design of a Play (dots), Best Lighting Design of a Play (Jane Cox), Best Costume Design of a Play (Dede Ayite), and Best Sound Design of Play (Bray Poor and Will Pickens).

The play chronicles the emotional and high-pitched reunion of a dysfunctional Arkansas family who return to the decaying family plantation mansion to sell off the house and battle over their recently deceased patriarch’s inheritance. The discovery of gruesome relic hidden away in the home brings up old sibling resentments and even older historical sins.
