Road Less Traveled Postpones

Yes, Sherlock, Covid Did it!


The Road Less Traveled production of Mysterious Circumstances has been postponed by one week and will now open on Thursday September 22. The theater confirms that there is a case of Covid in the company.


This brings to three the number of Curtain Up! shows that have delayed openings because of the pandemic. “Nice Work if You Can Get It” at MusicalFare and “Magnolia Ballet” at Alleyway had previously announced postponed openings.


Theaters are obliged to navigate a complicated landscape in which Covid restrictions have been relaxed and the public is feeling increasingly complacent, but a single case of Covid can close a show. Season announcements reveal theaters that are emboldened to gamble that large cast shows and elaborate musicals are possible again, but reality has been intervening to say, “Yes, up to a point.” Mysterious Circumstances, a play by Michael Mitnick, tells the "true story of Richard Lancelyn Green, the world’s foremost scholar on Sherlock Holmes. After spending two decades searching for a box containing the missing papers of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Green came close to unlocking the secrets behind Holmes’ creator through unpublished stories about the world’s greatest detective."


Single ticket buyers may exchange their tickets from September 15 – 18 to a future Mysterious Circumstances performance or request a refund. Subscribers may exchange their tickets from September 15 – 18 to another Mysterious Circumstances performance or apply their tickets to another production this season only. Patrons are asked to contact the RLTP Box Office at (716) 629-3069 or reservations@roadlesstraveledproductions.org
