Scrap It Before The Critics Get A Look At It

Minneapolis-based Theatre de la Jeune Lune, which won the 2005 Tony Award for best regional theatre in the U.S., has announced that it will cancel the final production of its 2005-06 season after deciding that the adaptation of “The Old Man Who Read Love Stories” would not be ready in time for its June debut. The company “is known for its unconventional approach to producing and programming. In 2004, the company canceled a week’s worth of performances of “The Ballroom” after opening in order to rework the show after disappointing critical and commercial reaction.”
