(LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- It's official and the reviews are in... Andrea Gallo is a smash hit and a 'must see'.

Due to popular demand, New Jersey Repertory Company is proud to extend the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere of "Broomstick" for an additional week, now playing through October 20.

Set in a remote cabin deep in the woods, a crafty witch lives in her own unique world. As she unveils her life, we journey with her down a shadowy path somewhere between our material world and the realm of fantasy. Andrea Gallo's 'masterful' performance takes us back to our childhood, when in our innocence, we first wrestled with good and evil. Written by John Biguenet and Directed by SuzAnne Barabas, "Broomstick" is no "Hansel and Gretel" fairy tale; for justice is swift and whiners end up in casseroles. Andrea Gallo is 'mesmerizing' in this one-woman production set in the mountains of Appalachia.

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays at 8:00 pm; Saturdays at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm; and Sundays at 2:00 pm, now through October 20.

Tickets are $40; Previews are $35; Opening night with reception is $50. Discounts are available for seniors, students, and groups of 10 or more. NJ Rep is a year-round, professional, non-profit theater located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch only minutes from the Jersey Shore. Free on-site parking is available and there is easy access from NJ Transit (North Jersey Coast Line) and Academy Buses.
