Taper pushes ‘Inishmore’ to 2010

Economy cited as reason for play's delay

Citing economic reasons, Center Theater Group has postponed Martin McDonagh’s play “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” until the 2010 season. The dark comedy was originally scheduled as the fourth production of CTG’s 2009 slate at the Mark Taper Forum.

“This is a decision that fits the economic times we’re all going through,” said CTG artistic director Michael Ritchie. “This will allow us to ensure the quality production that this important play deserves without jeopardizing our budget.”

“Having said that,” he continued, “we should also make it clear that CTG is not in financial trouble.”

CTG will not replace “Inishmore” with another production and will instead conclude the Taper’s season after David Mamet’s “Oleanna,” which runs May 28-July 12.
