The off-Broadway production of SeaWife, a new folk concert play cocreated by Seth Moore and indie-folk rock sextet the Lobbyists, has extended its run through July 26 at South Street Seaport Museum's Melville Gallery. A production of Naked Angels, the musical is directed by Liz Carlson.

SeaWife is described as "a modern theatrical event that envelops its audience in a dark original tale marked with romance, tragedy, and spirits on the high seas." The plot follows Percy, a young sailor living during the golden age of the American whaling industry, as he journeys through port cities and on sea vessels.

The play features an original score of folk instrumentation, performed by actor-musicians Tommy Crawford, Eloïse Eonnet, Alex Grubbs, Will Turner, Tony Vo, and Douglas Waterbury-Tieman (the Lobbyists) with Raymond Sicam III.

The design team includes set designer Jason Sherwood, costume designer Loren Shaw, lighting designer Jake DeGroot, and sound designer Dave Sanderson, with puppet design by James Ortiz.
