The National Theater of the United States of America has extended its run of "What’s That on My Head!?!" at DUMBO’s NEST Arts complex until Feb. 29.

"We have been turning people away every night," founding member Yehuda Duenyaf told GO Brooklyn. The seating capacity of the ride designed by the company is 30, and because of the nature of the show, there’s no standing room.

Duenyaf believes the show’s popularity is mostly due to "word of mouth."

"We’ve had a couple of reviews," he said, including one in the Jan. 24 edition of GO Brooklyn. "People are walking away from the show very provoked, and they want their friends to see it."

The show provokes, said Duenyaf, because it stimulates on different levels.

"It’s a spectacle and there’s a strong intellectual concept, as well. There are many different points of view."

After February, NTUSA may extend the play again, all the way to July; that’s how long the company has the space. (And there is only one actor who would have to leave because of previous commitments.)

"Everyone that’s involved is very dedicated," said Duenyaf. "That’s another thing audiences like. They’re seeing a group of people that’s very excited about what they’re doing. That’s refreshing."

"What’s That on My Head!?!" plays through Feb. 29, Thursdays through Sundays, at 8 pm. Tickets are $15. The NEST arts complex is located at 88 Front St. at Washington Street in DUMBO. For reservations, call (212) 615-6607.
