I hadn't seen it elsewhere (correct me if I'm wrong!), but the Aida workshop was also canceled.

Here in Wisconsin, the Overture Center in Madison canceled the remaining dates of WICKED. And in Milwaukee, the Marcus Center said that THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG has been postponed. Not sure what's going to happen with ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE at the Fox Cities PAC in Appleton...

Got this in an email from the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust regarding The Band’s Visit cancellation:

Thank you for being a PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season ticket holder. Your performance of The Band's Visit was cancelled due to the COVID-19 health pandemic.

This circumstance is unprecedented and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is preparing for the future when we can welcome you back into our theaters and venues.

For your convenience, our team will automatically credit your account toward your PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh 2020-2021 season renewal unless we hear from you.

If you do not wish for the credit to be applied to next season and would like to discuss other options, please click the button below.

So with that said, it’s likely the tour won’t come back around here anytime soon. Sad.

Spongebob, Once on this Island, A Bronx Tale, and Miss Saigon are all cancelled for the rest of their stops. Such a shame for all the incredible actors and crew.

Well, there goes my ticket to A Bronx Tale.  I exchanged my Mean Girls ticket for it, when I was sick.

Do you have a source for this?

Miss Saigon and A Bronx Tale are still for sale in Orlando, and their websites don't mention any cancellation.

I'm a little pessimistic that the stops that were "postponed" will actually happened.  This all went down after a number of venues announced their 20-21 seasons, and others probably had them pretty much set.  The venue here (Wilmington, DE) usually announces in early March and hasn't yet, but fitting in whatever shows don't stop here because of this (we already missed Play that Goes Wrong, will likely miss Color Purple (scheduled 4/16-19), and Fiddler (May 7-10) will depend when restrictions are lifted) will likely be complicated, and the same is true for other venues.  Assuming  these shows go back on tour next season, they are likely pretty well booked up- and the venues already have dates blocked off, contracts signed, etc.   If the shows are still touring in 21-22, that might be more practical.

For Jacksonville, we currently have one official show, Hamilton, that has been postponed.  Our last show, of our series, is the equity tour of Anastasia, which is the end of April.  I can easily seeing that postponed also.  I think they will definitely try to fit Hamilton into the 2020/2021 season, instead of refunding all that money.  In addition, the nonequity tour of Anastasia  will be running by then.  It will be easier to find a spot during the 2020/2021 season and will also be much cheaper for our sponser.  The average person will not know the difference, between the two tours, just as long as they saw it.  I think some shows that would have been part of our 2020/2021 series will be cut in favor of these two.  Our series has not been announced and will probably be pushed back, to accommodate the rescheduling.

Any info on the Wicked tour for May? It’s suppose to start is Columbus OH run in less than a month (Apr. 22 - May 17) and Ticketmaster is still selling tickets. I’m supposed to see it May 2nd and guessing it may end up being cancelled.
