Despite the uncertainty that’s come with being on rocky financial footing over the last year, Burbank’s Colony Theatre is extending its season to meet unexpected demand for their hit musical “Falling For Make Believe.”
The musical, which tells the life story of songwriter Lorenz Hart and features songs he wrote with Richard Rodgers, was originally scheduled to run four weeks, ending on Sunday, but due to demand, it will return to the 270-seat theater on June 6 and run to the end of the month.
Creative Director Barbara Beckley said the theater had already sold 5,433 tickets to the show, and that, given the response, the troupe would continue production as long as they can.
“We have commitments from the cast and everybody through the end of June, but we would love to run through the summer,” she said. “The entire run, the reviews have been sensational, word of mouth has spread like wildfire.”
