As previously reported, the deluge curtain went off March 13 and the evening performance was canceled.

"The crew worked through the night to clean up, repair and replace items as needed," according to a March 14 press statement. "To ensure that all systems have been effectively re-installed, the company will rehearse on stage this afternoon and there will be no 2 pm matinee performance today."

For patrons with tickets to this afternoon’s matinee preview performance, return to point-of-purchase for refund or exchange.

With a score by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, this production is directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony Award winner Rob Ashford.  The musical stars Grammy winner Ricky Martin as Che, Olivier Award-winning Argentinean actress Elena Roger as Eva Perón and Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris as Juan Perón. Opening is scheduled for April 5.
