Fall Season Cancellations

"Harvey" & "Plough" Drop Boston From Their Schedules

The Fall 2003-2004 season was barely announced when two shows dropped from sight.

The Broadway bound engagement of the comic classic, “Harvey,” scheduled to kick off the fall season at The Shubert, is skipping Boston to go straight to Broadway from its premiere at the Laguna Playhouse.

The Wang/Shubert season will now begin with the Boston premiere of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” on October 7. (Plus, somewhere between the season announcement a few weeks ago and the cancellation, Dick Cavett disappeared from the cast only to be replaced by Dick Van Patten.)

Refunds for "Harvey" may be received at point of purchase, or patrons may exchange their tickets for one of the Wang’s other productions, including, “Hair,” “The Sound of Music,” “Nunsense,” “Miss Saigon,” “Chicago,” Oliver,” “Starlight Express” or the previously mentioned “Millie.”

Broadway in Boston also announced that the Abbey Theatre production of “The Plough and the Stars” will not come to Boston’s Wilbur Theatre next year after all. During negotiations, it was determined that logistical, physical and scheduling questions could not be resolved.

The Abbey was responsible for the stunning production of “Medea” that played The Wilbur last fall.

More as it happens.
