MattieIce2018 said: "PPAC in providence has revised its season as follows:

The Prom (tour launch) 1/23-1/29/21
Oklahoma! 3/2-3/7/21
Ain’t too Proud 3/30-4/4/21
Summer 4/6-4/11/21
My Fair Lady 4/20-4/25/21
Mean Girls 6/15-6/20/21

Pretty Woman (tour launch) and The Cher Show have been cut from the season. Is PW being postponed?


Pretty Woman is supposed to come to Philly the following week.  I am wondering if that will get cut (probably).  Also, Ain't Too Proud is supposed to run in Philly from 3/16 - 4/4.  I guess they are cutting the last week of the run here and sending it up to Providence.

According to the Bushnell in Hartford (Instagram), the start of the Hadestown national tour has been postponed. Any word from other presenters or the show itself yet to confirm this?

It has been announced that the launch of the Hadestown tour is postponed until further notice.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Interesting that Les Miz doesn't say the tour has closed — just postponed until further notice.

So now according to a new casting notice they’re trying to cast the majority of the leads as POC. Is this to “cash in” on the current situation?

Just saw this on Twitter. This is for the Tootsie tour for those who don’t know. I hate to make assumptions but this is just so... odd...

An agent posted on the twitter thread that originally they only had 7 submissions with diverse talent, so they sent out the breakdown again to try and get more submissions from that talent pool. It’s suspect timing though, and worded poorly.

Ah okay I missed that. Yeah agree that the timing makes it come off a bit weird for sure, but based on that and I suppose principally either way, it seems like it’s in good nature.
