The Roundabout Theatre’s Broadway revival of Pal Joey, currently running at Studio 54, will extend through March 1. The show, which opened on December 18, was originally set to close February 15.

The production is directed by Joe Mantello, and features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Lorenz Hart, and a new book by Richard Greenberg, based on the original book by John O’Hara. Set in Chicago in the late 1930s, Pal Joey is the story of Joey Evans, a brash, scheming song and dance man with dreams of owning his own nightclub.

The show stars Matthew Risch in the title role, Stockard Channing (Vera Simpson), Martha Plimpton (Gladys Bumps), Robert Clohessy (Mike), Jenny Fellner (Linda English), Daniel Marcus (Ludlow Lowell), and Steven Skybell (Ernest), along with Timothy J. Alex, Brian Barry, Bahiyah Sayyed Gaines, Lisa Gajda, Anthony Holds, Nadine Isenegger, Mark Morettini, Kathryn Mowat Murphy, Abbey O’Brien, Hayley Podschun, Krista Saab, and Eric Sciotto.

The creative team includes Paul Gemignani (music direction), Graciela Daniele (choreography), Scott Pask (sets), William Ivey Long (costumes), Peggy Eisenhauer and Jules Fisher (lights), Tony Meola (sound), and Don Sebesky (orchestrations).
