Atlantic Theater Company has announced a one-week extension of the world premiere production of Eddie and Dave, written by and featuring Amy Staats and directed by Margot Bordelon. The production, which opened on Tuesday, January 22, will now play through February 17 at Atlantic Theater Company's Stage 2. Closing was originally set for February 10.

The story is described as follows: "A raucous retelling of the rise and fall of Pasadena's most groundbreaking '80s rockers told through the foggy lens of a lonely, out of work MTV VJ. Eddie and Dave is a gender-bending new play by Amy Staats about hubris, friendship, family, fame, musical genius and what happens when the person you need is the one you find most irritating."

Joining Staats in the cast are Vanessa Aspillaga (Amy and the Orphans), Megan Hill (Do You Feel Anger), Omer Abbas Salem, and Adina Verson (Indecent).

The creative team includes scenic design by Reid Thompson, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, projections by Shawn Boyle, original compositions by Michael Thurber, hair and wigs by Cookie Jordan, fight direction by Mike Rossmy, and casting by Caparelliotis Casting: Lauren Port, CSA.
