The Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Tennessee Williams' The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, at the Laura Pels Theatre, has announced a one-week extension and will now close on April 10. Michael Wilson has directed the production.

Oscar winner Olympia Dukakis stars in the production as Flora Goforth, a dying American widow who has detached from the world in order to write her memoirs, and who is visited by a handsome and mysterious young man.

The cast also includes Curtis Billings (Giulio), Elisa Bocanegra (Simonetta), Edward Hibbert (Witch of Capri), Maggie Lacey (Frances Black), and Darren Pettie (Christopher Flanders). Gordana Rashovich, currently on standby for Olympia Dukakis, will play the role of Flora Goforth on Wednesday evenings through March 30.

The design team includes Jeff Cowie (sets), David C. Woolard (costumes), Rui Rita (lights) and John Gromada (original music & sound).

This production premiered May 2008 at Hartford Stage, directed by Wilson and was the culmination of the director's ten-year project on the work of Tennessee Williams. The Roundabout presentation is being presented in conjunction with Tennessee Williams' centennial celebration.
