Classic Stage Company has announced that its production of Galileo has extended by one week, and will now run February 1-March 11, with an opening on February 23. Brian Kulick will direct.

Bertolt Brecht's play, translated by Charles Laughton, explores the question of a scientist's social and ethical responsibility, as the brilliant scientist Galileo must choose between his life and his life's work when confronted with the Inquisition.

As previously reported, the cast will feature F. Murray Abraham in the title role, along with Jon DeVries, Robert Dorfman, Aaron Himelstein, Andy Phelan, Amanda Quaid, Steve Rattazzi, Steven Skybell and Nick Westrate.

The production will include scenic design by Adrianne Lobel, lighting design by Justin Townsend, costume design by Oana Botez-Ban and original music and sound design by Christian Frederickson and Ryan Rumery.
