Second Stage Theatre has delayed the official opening of Modern Terrorism, Or They Who Want to Kill Us and How We Learn to Love Them from October 15 to the new date of October 18. The reason given is "an actor illness and the resulting loss of previews and rehearsal time."

The production canceled previews on Sunday, September 30, Tuesday, October 2 and both shows on Wednesday, October 3. Previews are scheduled to resume on Thursday, October 4.

Jon Kern's world premiere comedy is billed as a provocative satire about a rogue group of 21st-century terrorists and their darkly comic misadventures.

The cast includes Utkarsh Ambudkar, Steven Boyer, William Jackson Harper, and Nitya Vidyasagar.

The production features scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costume design by Mimi O'Donnell, lighting design by Russell Champa, and sound design by M.L. Dogg.

The production is set to run through Sunday, November 4.
