B.D. Wong has canceled his June 5 and 19 dates at NYC's Joe's Pub, citing a family emergency. The event will be rescheduled but not until this fall. Ticket buyers who purchased their tickets at the Public Theater can call (212) 260-2400 for a credit card refund; for a cash refund, they must visit the theatre at 425 Lafayette St. Ticket buyers who used Telecharge should call (212) 239-6200.
Wong is best known for his dramatic roles in plays such as M. Butterfly, The Tempest and Bosoms and Neglect. He has, however, shown his talents as a song and dance man in Drama Dept.'s As Thousands Cheer.
