Three cheers for Trevor Nunn!

The production of “Pericles” that the famed Shakespearean is directing at Theatre for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center is getting an extended run.

The play, one of the last that was written (or partly written, in this case) by Shakespeare, will be performed through Sunday, April 10 at the Brooklyn Cultural District playhouse.

Jeffrey Horowitz, Theatre for a New Audience’s founding artistic director, said in an announcement that the extended run is due to wide acclaim and box office demand.

“Pericles” had originally been set to close on Sunday, March 27. Previews began on Feb. 14; the play’s opening was Feb. 25.

The 22-member cast is led by Christian Camargo in the title role. The actor won an Obie Award for his role as Hamlet in a Theatre for a New Audience production of Shakespeare’s masterwork.
