With the stagehands strike now in its third day and the opening nights of Conor McPherson’s spooky romp The Seafarer and Aaron Sorkin’s buzzed-about The Farnsworth Invention quickly approaching, producers of those shows are contemplating rescheduling the official opening nights, according to Playbill.
“If the strike continues,” a spokesperson for both shows told Playbill.com, “the openings will be changed.” If those dates are revised, the producers are asking critics to hold their reviews until the new opening dates.
The Farnsworth Invention, which plays the Music Box Theatre, is scheduled to officially open Nov. 14. The Seafarer, which plays the Booth Theatre, has a Nov. 15 opening. Both the Music Box and Booth are theatres affected by the strike.
