If you were mad as hell that you couldn't get tickets to the Broadway production of "Network," there's some good news. After opening to rave reviews last week, producers announced on Wednesday that the show, which was originally set to end March 17, has been extended through April 28.

"Network," based on the 1976 film which featured an Oscar-winning screenplay by Paddy Chayefsky, boasts a top-flight cast that includes Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black") and Tony Goldwyn ("Scandal"). Cranston, in particular, was singled out by critics for his intense performance as deranged TV anchorman Howard Beale, a role that earned Peter Finch a posthumous best actor Oscar.

Tickets for the additional performances will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday. To reserve seats, call 212-239-6200 or go to
