The Roundabout Theatre Company's limited-engagement revival of the Tom Jones-Harvey Schmidt-N. Richard Nash musical 110 in the Shade has been extended for two weeks, through July 29. The show has received five Tony Award nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical.

Directed by Lonny Price, 110 in the Shade stars four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as Lizzie Curry, two-time Tony winner John Cullum as H.C. Curry, Steve Kazee as Starbuck, Christopher Innvar as File, Chris Butler as Noah, Bobby Steggert as Jimmy, and Carla Duren as Snookie. The ensemble includes Coleen Fitzpatrick, Valisia Lekae Little, Darius Nichols, Mamie Parris, Devin Richards, Michael Scott, Will Swenson, Elisa Van Duyne, Matt Wall, and Betsy Wolfe.

The production team includes Dan Knechtges (choreography), Paul Gemignani (musical direction), Jonathan Tunick (orchestrations), Santo Loquasto (sets and costumes), Christopher Akerlind (lighting), and Dan Moses Schereier (sound).

Based on Nash's play The Rainmaker and set in Texas in the 1930s, the musical tells the story of Lizzie Curry, a single woman on the verge of becoming an "old maid," whose life is changed when the charismatic rainmaker Starbuck comes to town.
