Well, I just received an e-mail that the touring production of Hello, Dolly! that I was supposed to see next week has been canceled due to the coronavirus. This marks the second touring production I bought a ticket for but was unable to see. I wasn’t able to see Come From Away after buying a ticket because I bought it before my shift at work changed, and then when I got the shift change, there was no way for me to exchange the ticket to a later date. And now, I won’t be able to see Hello, Dolly! due to the coronavirus. Oh well. Hopefully I’ll see some other production in the future, as I haven’t seen it on stage before. And hopefully, I’ll still be able to catch Dear Evan Hansen if it still arrives here in June.
