The Roundabout Theatre Company production of “Doubt” has been extended. The revival of the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by John Patrick Shanley will now run through April 21; the play was originally scheduled to close April 14.

“Doubt” began previews on Feb.3 and will open on March 7 at the newly renamed Todd Haimes Theatre. The production is directed by Scott Ellis.

This announcement marks the seventh new production opening in the 2023-2024 season to extend. “Merrily We Roll Along,” “Jaja’s African Hair Braiding,” “Purlie Victorious,” “I Need That,” “Appropriate” and “Prayer for the French Republic” all announced additional performances.

Tony nominee Amy Ryan stars as Sister Aloysius, principal of an all-boys Catholic school in the Bronx, who suspects a priest, Father Flynn, played by Tony winner Liev Schreiber, of carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a student. Rounding out the company are Quincy Tyler Bernstine as the student’s mother, Mrs. Muller, and Zoe Kazan as Sister James, a fellow nun.

Ryan joined the company on Feb. 13, replacing originally announced Tony winner Tyne Daly, who withdrew from the production due to health concerns. Tony nominee Isabel Keating played the role of Sister Aloysius for the first nine preview performances.

“Doubt” is produced by Roundabout, for which Ellis serves as interim artistic director.
