From Austria, Sound And Fury Over Goodman Cancellation

By cutting “Joan D’Arc” from its fall lineup, saying the show wasn’t ready for Chicago, the Goodman Theatre has enraged its producing partner, Austria’s Linz09 festival. “We are appalled by the Goodman Theatre’s actions and wording as it represents an insult to the artistic integrity of the project and the work of all involved artists,” wrote the festival’s Airan Berg, who called the Goodman’s decision “censorship.”
