The ongoing (as of Nov. 2) power outage in downtown Manhattan, in many neighborhoods south of 34th Street, has prompted Off-Broadway's Classic Stage Company to move the opening night of its revival of Chekhov's Ivanov from Nov. 4 to Nov. 15.
CSC operates at 136 E. 13th Street. It has been without power since Monday, Oct. 29; five performances have been canceled so far, as of Friday. Playbill learned that in recent days the company has been engaged in brushup rehearsals in midtown, where there has been power following the deadly Oct. 29 landfall of Hurricane Sandy.
Officials say power is expected to be restored Nov. 2-3. "CSC hopes to resume preview performances by Saturday evening, Nov. 3, but ticket-holders should visit the company's website, www.classicstage.org, its Facebook page or Twitter feed (@classicstage) for updates," according to CSC.
