Asolo Rep Announces the Cancellation of the
First Preview Performance of the World Premiere Musical JOSEPHINE;
Performances to Resume as Scheduled on Thursday, April 28
Asolo Rep announced on Wednesday, April 27 the cancellation of its first preview performance, scheduled for Wednesday, April 27 at 8pm, of the world premiere Broadway-bound musical JOSEPHINE. All other performances will resume as scheduled on Thursday, April 28.
“JOSEPHINE is a complicated world premiere Broadway-bound musical, and there are many complex elements involved in creating a successful production of this caliber. Last night, we at Asolo Rep made the difficult decision to cancel tonight’s first preview performance because we felt strongly that this production needed one more day of technical rehearsal in order to present the best possible performance for our live audience and to ensure the safety of the cast. We look forward to performances resuming as scheduled on Thursday, April 28.” – Michael Donald Edwards, Producing Artistic Director of Asolo Rep.
Patrons with tickets for tonight’s performance are being contacted by Asolo Rep’s Box Office. Ticket holders are encouraged to call the box office at 941.351.8000 or 800.361.8388 to exchange their seats.
