Fans of musical theater adaptations of Shakespeare, you should be sitting down for this. Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate, which was to run from September 28th to October 3rd at the Shanghai Grand Stage, has been canceled! The show, put on by Sydney’s Brave Touch Productions, recently fared rather poorly during its Beijing run, and all shows in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen have been shuttered as a result. Only 25 percent of tickets in Beijing had been sold, while Shanghai fared little better, with only a third of available tickets sold as of yesterday. Full ticket refunds can be redeemed at the Shanghai Grand Stage from 6pm to 8pm beginning tomorrow, or from 10am to 5:30pm at any ticket agency where the original ticket was purchased. Though some sources claim the last day for claiming ticket refunds is October 10th, we’d recommend getting them before October 3rd, just to be safe. For refunds, you can call either (21) 61204560, or (21) 61326581.
