Manhattan Theatre Club has announced a one-week extension of “Lackawanna Blues,” following the cancellation of several performances. 

“Lackawanna Blues” will now play the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre through Nov. 7. The extension comes after star Ruben Santiago-Hudson suffered a back injury, which caused the cancellation of performances the weekends of Oct. 8 and Sept. 24. 

Performances for the one-man show were scheduled to resume Tuesday. In addition to performing, Santiago-Hudson is the writer and director of the play.
