Manhattan Theatre Club has extended its productions of Sell/Buy/Date, written and performed by Tony Award winner Sarah Jones, and Qui Nguyen's Vietgone. Sell/Buy/Date will now close on Saturday, December 3, while Vietgone will end its run on Sunday, December 4. Both productions are performed at Manhattan Theatre Club's home at New York City Center.

Sell/Buy/Date is directed by Carolyn Cantor and inspired by the real-life experiences of people affected by the commercial sex industry. Vietgone, directed by May Adrales, re-creates the playwright's own parents' meeting at a relocation camp inside Middle America after the Vietnam War.

The creative team for Sell/Buy/Date includes Dane Laffrey (scenic and costume design), Eric Southern (lighting design), Bray Poor (sound design), and Antonia Grilikes-Lasky (dramaturg).

The cast of Vietgone features Jon Hoche, Jennifer Ikeda, Raymond Lee, Samantha Quan, and Paco Tolso, with a creative team that includes Tim Mackabee (scenic design), Anthony Tran (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Shane Rettig (original music and sound design), and Jared Mezzocchi (projection design).
