Vanity Fair, adapted by Kate Hamill from William Thackeray's novel, has announced a third and final extension at the Pearl Theatre. Performances began March 24 in advance of an April 2 opening and will now run through May 27.

Helmed by Bedlam artistic director Eric Tucker, Vanity Fair features Hamill leading a seven-member ensemble in the central role of Becky Sharp. The story is set in a society that cares more for good birth and good manners than for skill. Sharp — poor, plain, and devilishly clever — is determined to defy the odds through risky romantic entanglements, shady business practices, and social climbing at any cost. She won't stop until the world lies at her feet.

Joining Hamill in the cast are the Pearl's resident acting company members Joey Parsons and Brad Heberlee with guest artists Zach Fine, Tom O'Keefe, Ryan Quinn, and Debargo Sanyal.
