Call the Children Home Continues Performances Following Cancellations Last Week
Performances of the new Off-Broadway musical Call the Children Home at Primary Stages will continue through this weekend after two shows had to be canceled last week.
According a spokesman for Primary Stages, the husband of Tamara Tunie -- one of the show's stars -- "went in for emergency surgery. His condition was very serious at one point and she had to be with him. Unfortunately, we don't have understudies because we're a small, non-profit theater." As a result, performances last Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon had to be canceled. But, the spokesman told TheaterMania, "As far as we know, [Tunie's husband] is now doing much better and we hope to finish the run with no more interruptions. We were able to reschedule our subscribers who had tickets for the canceled performances."
