Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway production of Wit has extended, and will now play the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre through March 17.

Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play follows brilliant and exacting poetry professor Vivian Bearing as she undergoes experimental treatment for cancer. A scholar who devoted her life to academia, she must now face the irony and injustice of becoming the subject of research.

Cynthia Nixon stars as Vivian Bearing, with the cast also featuring Pun Bandhu (Technician), Suzanne Bertish (E.M. Ashford), Michael Countryman (Harvey Kelekian/Mr. Bearing), Jessica Dickey (Technician), Chiké Johnson (Technician), Greg Keller (Jason Posner), Carra Patterson (Susie Monahan), and Zachary Spicer (Technician). Lynne Meadow has directed the production.

The creative team includes Santo Loquasto (scenic design), Jennifer von Mayrhauser (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Jill BC Du Boff (sound design) and J. David Brimmer (specialty staging consultant).
