Cynthia Nixon and Staceyann Chin Project Canceled Last-Minute

News   Cynthia Nixon and Staceyann Chin Project Canceled Last-Minute
 
Culture Project's world premiere of MotherStruck!, written and performed by Staceyann Chin and directed by Cynthia Nixon, will no longer begin performances Sept. 24 at Off-Broadway's Lynn Redgrave Theater. Just two days before first preview, the production has been delayed indefinitely.

"This is a show I have waited my whole producing career to produce," said Culture Project artistic director Allan Buchman in a press statement. "At this point, though, we do not have the resources to produce MotherStruck! in the manner in which it deserves."

A spokesperson for Culture Project said that the organization is still planning to produce the work at a later date, but no details have been confirmed. Neither Nixon nor Chin have spoken out about the cancellation.

About MotherStruck!, Buchman previously said: "It gives voice to an important artist, poet, and performer – a black, Chinese woman who is gay and miles from the comforts of white elitism. Ms. Nixon has a probing theatrical intelligence that has prepared Staceyann to convey her perspective in a lively, humorous and touching manner to those individuals most disparately in need of her message."

Chin is an award-winning spoken word artist, LGBT rights activist and bestselling author of "The Other Side of Paradise: A Memoir." She has appeared on television and radio including The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN and PBS. MotherStruck! is the artist's autobiographical solo show about her real-life journey as a single mother without health insurance or financial stability, and finding peace and insight from the experience.
