Ragtime Gets One Week Extension On Broadway

Theatre fans have been given one last chance to catch RAGTIME on Broadway - the musical's closing date has been pushed back by one week due to popular demand.
The $8 million (£5 million) revival has struggled to find an audience, despite positive reviews, since opening at New York's Neil Simon Theatre in November (09).
It was announced on Tuesday (29Dec09) that the curtain would fall for the final time on Sunday (03Jan10), but that date has now been delayed after an unexpected boost in ticket sales.
Producer Kevin MCCollum tells the New York Times, "People were waiting to see Ragtime, and they know it's still here, so we're getting a great amount of interest in tickets."
The production will now bow out on 10 January (10) after an additional eight performances.
