AT WIT'S END Scheduled To Replace The Cancelled National Tour Of XANADU
President of Shea's Performing Arts Center, Michael G. Murphy is pleased to announce the Western New York premiere of Erma Bombeck "At Wit's End" at Shea's 710 Theatre will replace the cancelled national tour of Xanadu. RWS Entertainment Group announced the cancellation of "Xanadu" earlier this week. Shea's 710 will be presenting Rochester's Geva Theatre's production of At Wit's End starring syndicated columnist Pam Sherman as Erma following its sold-out run at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts this September.
"We are disappointed to learn of the tour cancellation but very excited to partner with Rochester's Geva Theatre to bring their blockbuster hit to Buffalo audiences. "At Wit's End" broke sales and attendance records for Geva's Fielding Stage with its thrice extended, sold-out run. Due to patron demand, it was remounted the following year and once again filled every seat for its three-week run" notes Murphy.
Shea's 710 Theatre "Xanadu" ticket holders will be mailed tickets for "At Wit's End" to replace the tickets to Xanadu. There will be no Wednesday evening performance of this show. Individuals holding tickets to that performance will be contacted by the Shea's Box Office Staff. Individual ticket holders who wish to switch their seats to this exciting new show. Those individuals wishing a refund should contact the Shea's Box Office at 716-847-0850.
