Based on comedian and Emmy winner Sarah Silverman’s best-selling memoir, Atlantic Theater Company’s world premiere musical The Bedwetter has been extended for a second time, with its run now continuing through July 10 at the Linda Gross Theater.
The work, which officially opened June 7 after beginning performances April 30, features a book by Drama Desk winner Joshua Harmon and Silverman, with lyrics by Silverman and Emmy winner Adam Schlesinger, who also composed the music. Read reviews for the world premiere here.
