Anna Deavere Smith in Let Me Down Easy

ArtsBeat reports that Let Me Down Easy, Anna Deavere Smith’s one-woman Off-Broadway show at Second Stage’s 43rd Street theater (which we previewed back when it opened in October) has been extended a second time, and will now continue performances into the New Year.

Originally scheduled to close on November 8, a first extension had the show running through December 6, but in an announcement today Second Stage added three weeks of performances through January 3 (with a hiatus from December 14-20 so that Smith can appear in Hymm with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at New York City Center). Check out an amazing (and hilarious) clip from a TED conference in 2005 where she performed four of the interview clips that make up her shows.
