Dry Powder, Starring Claire Danes and John Krasinski, Extends

Hank Azaria leads the cast of Sarah Burgess' world premiere at the Public.

Homeland star Claire Danes stars in Sarah Burgess' Dry Powder at the Public Theater.

The Public Theater has announced an extension for its world-premiere of Sarah Burgess' Dry Powder. The production, which is directed by Thomas Kail, was originally set to run March 1-April 10. It will now close on May 1.

Dry Powder stars Emmy winners Claire Danes (Homeland) and Hank Azaria (The Simpsons) as well as John Krasinski (The Office) and Sanjit De Silva.

Azaria leads the company as Rick, who, in the same week as his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth (Krasinski), one of Rick's managing directors, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from the company's PR disaster. But Jenny (Danes), Seth's counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the human toll.

Dry Powder features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Jason Lyons, and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
