Abigail's Party opened on December 1 and was originally set to run through January 7. Earlier this month, the production was extended through February 11 due to strong ticket sales. A biting satire of British middle-class life, the play was first performed in England in the 1970s, where it became a huge phenomenon after a television version was aired.
Directed by Scott Elliott, the New Group production stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Max Baker, Lisa Emery, Darren Goldstein, and Elizabeth Jasicki. It features set design by Derek McLane, lighting design by Jason Lyons, costume design by Eric Becker, and sound design by Ken Travis.
