Due to popular demand, Rantoul and Die, an off-Broadway production created by the downtown theater troupe The Amoralists, is adding two performances to the final week of its run at the Cherry Lane Theatre. The play began performances June 24 and has set its final performance for July 20 at 7pm. The additional performances will take place on July 13 and 20 at 2pm.

The cast features The Amoralists' resident playwright Derek Ahonen (The Cheaters Club), Sarah Lemp (The Bad and the Better), Matthew Pilieci (Through the Yellow Hour), and Vanessa Vaché (The Bad and the Better).
