NEW YORK (AP) - Woody Harrelson's play "Bullet for Adolf" is extending its off-Broadway run by more than a month and the actor-turned-playwright is hopeful it will continue building an audience.
The comedy was co-written by Harrelson and friend Frankie Hyman and has a semi-autobiographical plot that sprang from true events and unusual people the pair encountered as construction workers in the summer of 1983.
The eight-person play, directed by Harrelson, opened in August at New World Stages and was originally scheduled to play its final performance on Sept. 9. The production will now play through Oct. 21.
The play got mixed reviews but Harrelson, the former "Cheers" star, sees positive signs: "The audience is building every week so I'm optimistic."
