Classic Stage Company has announced an extension for its world-premiere production of Fire and Air, a new play by Tony Award winner Terrence McNally and directed by John Doyle. The limited engagement will now run through March 2 beyond its originally announced closing date of February 25.

Fire and Air explores the rich history of the Ballets Russes, Sergei Diaghilev's itinerant Russian ballet company. Surrounded by great talents of art, design, and music, the tempestuous relationship between Diaghilev and dancer Vaslav Nijinsky revolutionizes dance forever.

Featured in the cast are James Cusati-Moyer (Nijinsky), John Glover (Dima), Douglas Hodge (Diaghilev), Jay Armstrong Johnson (Massine), Marsha Mason (Dunya), and Marin Mazzie (Misia). The creative team includes scenic design by John Doyle, costume design by Ann Hould-Ward, lighting design by Jane Cox, sound design by Matt Stine, and hair and makeup design by J. Jared Janas.
