Just days after the Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour was cancelled
, Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre
announced that its season-ending production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
has been canceled. (Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice created both musicals).
Le Petit will produce another musical instead. A spokesperson said the theater had been granted rights to produce Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
, but a conflict arose when it was included in the Broadway in New Orleans
series (it runs
April 14-19, 2015). Le Petit director Cassie Steck Worley said refunds will be granted to ticket buyers requesting them.
