BroadwayWorld has learned A.R.T. has canceled all performances of WILD: A Musical Becoming following breakthrough COVID-19 infections. Out of an abundance of caution and in recognition of shifting disease dynamics, December programming at OBERON, the final events to have been presented at the 2 Arrow Street space, have also been cancelled.
The new musical fable is about a single mother (played by Idina Menzel) struggling to hold on to her family farm and connect with her teenage daughter (played by YDE), whose determination to save the planet endows her and her friends with powers they never knew they had.
Inspired by the show's theme of caring for the planet, this concert production embraces regenerative practice and invites audiences to use their imagination to set the scene.
Idina Menzel is confirmed to perform the role of Bea through December 23. Crystal Monee Hall (RENT and Kristen Chenowith's For the Girls on Broadway, Chasing Magic at A.R.T.) will perform December 27 - January 2.
American Repertory Theater's concert production of WILD: A Musical Becoming opened officially on Thursday, December 9 and was set to run through January 2nd.
