The pair woke up Friday to an e-mail that said playhouse management made the decision to lock down the theater due to the slick roads and icy conditions created by Thursday night’s snowfall. The Saturday and Sunday performances will go on as scheduled, Dottley says.
“Del and I are devastated by the news of this unfortunate development,” he says.
To help make up for it, the “Sordid Affair” producers are hosting a gathering with the entire cast for ticket holders at the W Atlanta Midtown Hotel beginning Friday at 7:30 p.m.
“We can’t have the show, but this will be far more intimate and a chance to mingle with the cast,” Dottley says. “We hope it helps defray the disappointment people have over circumstances beyond our control.”
Playhouse employees tell Shores and Dottley that they cannot get into the theater to access the ticket holder list, so they are not able to contact anyone about the cancellation.
The box office is scheduled to be open Saturday, and any Friday night ticket holder can call the 14th Street Playhouse at 404-733-4738 to exchange their Friday tickets for the Saturday night or Sunday afternoon performances, or to request a refund.
The cast will also keep their schedule to appear at a Saturday afternoon DVD signing and meet & greet at Outwrite.
“A Sordid Affair” reunites the cast of the “Sordid Lives” TV show for a variety show of sorts, along with guests including the “Princess of Country Music” Georgette Jones. Read our preview and get more information about the highly anticipated show.
