The Roundabout Theatre Company's critically acclaimed Broadway revival of The Importance of Being Earnest will extend its run at the American Airlines Theatre through July 3.

Due to the extension, the company's production of the new musical The People in the Picture which was scheduled to open at the American Airlines Theatre this spring, will now open at Roundabout's Studio 54, keeping its previously reported first preview of April 1 and opening of April 28.

The cast also features Santino Fontana as Algernon Moncrieff, David Furr as Jack Worthing, Dana Ivey as Miss Prism, Tim MacDonald as Merriman, Paul O'Brien as Lane, Charlotte Parry as Cecily Cardew, Sara Topham as Gwendolyn, and Paxton Whitehead as Reverend Chausible.
