Play Backed by Rosie O’Donnell and Cynthia Nixon Cancelled

NEW YORK (AP) – The world premiere of MotherStruck! – a play written and performed by Staceyann Chin – was canceled just two days before it was to start performances.

Allan Buchman, the artistic director of the off-Broadway company Culture Project, said that the play – directed by Cynthia Nixon and produced with help from Rosie O’Donnell – would not go on as planned, citing a lack of resources to produce it “in the manner in which it deserves.”

The play is about a lesbian activist’s journey to single motherhood. Chin made a name for herself with HBO’s Def Poetry Jam series, solo performances across the country and her memoir, The Other Side of Paradise.

The show was to start Sept. 24.
