NEW YORK (AP) — Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" will be haunting Broadway for a little longer.

Producers of the hit revival said Friday they're extending its run for three more weeks, until Jan. 22.

The show benefits from a veteran cast of 41 actors that includes Bernadette Peters and Jan Maxwell and is backed by a 28-piece orchestra. Most reviews have applauded the production, which centers on middle-aged angst and ghosts of the past.

The production began at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., before arriving at the Marquis Theatre on Broadway in September.
