New Ohio Theatre and the Mill have announced that the New York premiere of Mark Chrisler's Worse Than Tigers, directed by Emmy nominee Jaclyn Biskup, will extend at the New Ohio Theatre through September 8. It will begin previews on August 24 ahead of an August 26 opening.

Worse Than Tigers is described as follows: "Olivia and Humphry have a safe, comfortable, enviable life. Their condo is well-adorned with fancy knick-knacks, their social media presence is meticulously groomed, and they never fight. Or laugh. Or kiss. Or talk very much. Unexpectedly, Olivia's lover — id-driven Officer Kirk Patrick — shows up, trailing a man-eating tiger which takes up residence right outside, threatening to devour anyone who opens the door. Tigers may be dangerous, but there might be something worse inside. A comedy…until it's not."

Braeson Herold (HBO's Vinyl), Shannon Marie Sullivan (Philadelphia Theatre Company's 4000 Miles), and Zach Wegner (the New Group's Rich Boyfriend) will star. The production team will include Matt Carlin (scenic design), Kate Ducey (lighting design), Kristy Hall (costume design), A.J. Surasky (sound design), Caspin Jones (assistant scenic design & props design) and Nat Di Mario (production stage manager).
