Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway production of Florian Zeller's drama The Father has extended its run at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre one week through June 19. Directed by Doug Hughes, the work is translated from French to English by Christopher Hampton.

The Father is a contemporary work about dealing with Alzheimer's. As previously announced, three-time Tony Award winner and current Tony nominee Frank Langella leads the company as Andre, a retired dancer living with his adult daughter, Anne, and her husband. Or is he a retired engineer receiving a visit from Anne who has moved away with her boyfriend? Why do strangers keep turning up in his room? And where has he left his watch?

Joining Langella in the company are Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Brian Avers (The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Charles Borland (A Man for All Seasons), Hannah Cabell (Grounded), and Liz Wisan (These Paper Bullets).

The creative team for The Father includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music and sound design), and Jim Steinmeyer (illusion consultant).
