Previews began June 15. Due to positive COVID cases within the company, the show canceled preview performances June 17 through the June 22 matinee, announced via Twitter June 17. The production was initially scheduled to begin June 14, but canceled the first preview. No reason was given for the delay.
Two additional performances at 2 PM and 8 PM on June 26 have been added to this week's schedule to compensate for the canceled performances.
