Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 6, 2006
Washington, DC -- March 6, 2006 --The Studio Theatre announces a further extension of Fat Pig, a bitingly funny modern romance by NEIL LABUTE. This wildly popular show has resulted in sold-out houses and tickets still in demand. Tickets are available now through March 19.
Fat Pig continues to break box office records. Currently, Fat Pig is one of the highest grossing shows in the 28-year history of The Studio Theatre and joins the ranks of smash hits Take Me Out, Indian Ink and Invention of Love.
Tom (TYLER PIERCE) feels a magnetic attraction for the bright and witty Helen (KATE DEBELACK), but his coworkers hatch a plot to save him from himself. Brutally comic and painfully honest, Fat Pig is directed by PAUL MULLINS. Tickets are on sale now at The Studio Theatre, 1501 14th Street NW, 202-332-3300 or online at http://www.studiotheatre.org.
