An e-mail sent to ticket holders reads, "Due to Illness, Ms. Elaine Stritch's engagement at The RRazz Room originally scheduled for May 23 through June 10, 2012 has been postponed. New dates will be announced shortly."
Fellow Tony winner Barbara Cook, who is currently playing Feinstein's, will perform during two of the three weeks of Stritch's planned run.
"Barbara Cook's ticket prices are pricing slightly higher than Elaine Stritch's original ticket prices," the e-mail continues. "As a courtesy to all Elaine Stritch ticket holders, we will confirm Barbara Cook tickets for no additional cost as long as you keep your original dates or switch to the same day of the week. Alternatively, you may continue to hold on to your Elaine Stritch tickets and use them when we announce the new dates."
