The limited run of the Broadway revival of Noël Coward's Private Lives has been extended four weeks to September 1 following the show's success at Sunday's Tony Awards. The comedy's three Tonys include Best Revival, with Best Actress-Play going to Lindsay Duncan. Elsewhere on the Great White Way, a Best Actor-Musical Tony for John Lithgow won't be enough to keep the foundering Sweet Smell of Success afloat--the $10 million show will close June 15.
