Another Broadway Show Has Closed Completely Amid the Current Shut Down

The Broadway revival of the classic play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf has officially closed after playing just nine preview performances.

All Broadway shows were shut down on March 12 due to the current health crisis facing the world and it’s unclear when shows will be able to resume performances.

When Broadway returns, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf will not come resume performances “due to ensuing cast scheduling conflicts amid the shutdown.” The production starred Laurie Metcalf, Rupert Everett, Patsy Ferran, and Russell Tovey.

This is the second Broadway play to announce it will not return. The new play Hangmen also has canceled its run.
